“What excites me about Nick is he can play everywhere. He came on as a midfielder, then I put him up front and, in many games, I play him in a wide position coming inside and I can play him as a number nine because he has a tremendous physique.”
Rosler, whose team are 10th in the Championship table, has also revealed United manager David Moyes has been keeping regular tabs on Powell and will expect a further update on his progress later this month.
“We speak regularly,” the German boss told reporters. “David Moyes knows me very well. He knows his players will be well looked after. We agreed we'll have another talk in the last week of January. The player is happy, David is happy and I'm very happy. So I hope it continues.”
