Today at OT: 21-29 Dec

been moved to 23 February, kick-off 7pm, at Leigh Sports Village. (JT)

14:54 As well as today's hospital visits, the players also took time out to meet fans at the annual Manchester United Disabled Supporters' Association's (MUDSA) Christmas lunch at Old Trafford on Tuesday. The squad spent time chatting to members, while signing autographs and posing for photos. And during the lunch, Nemanja Vidic was presented with the MUDSA Player of the Year award. (GT)

14:46 Just in case you were wondering, Diouf won't be at the Africa Cup of Nations next month because his country, Senegal, didn't qualify. (JT)

12:06 The players will be bringing some Christmas cheer to a group of youngsters this afternoon when they make their annual visit to a couple of local hospitals. The squad will split into groups and deliver hundreds of Christmas presents to excited young fans. The hospital visits are something the players always enjoy and it really does mean a lot to the children. Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his reserve squad made some special deliveries to Francis House Children's Hospice last week. Ole and the players spent time with youngsters at the hospice and, like the first team, handed out a host of Christmas gifts. (GT)

11:32 We've just had confirmation from the club that Mame Biram Diouf has been granted a work permit. The striker will be available for selection from January (excluding the FA Cup tie with Leeds). I spoke to Sir Alex about the striker last week during our interview for Inside United and he had nothing but praise for the 22-year-old Senegal international. "He’s quick, very good in the air and a good striker of the ball," revealed the boss. (GT)

11:10 It's very quiet in the office today with only me and James to keep you company. As James said earlier, it was very sad to hear the news of Albert Scanlon's passing. You can now read Sir Alex's tribute to the Busby Babe. (GT)
