The 22 year old spent last season on loan at Doncaster Rovers before joining Salford City on a season loan last summer.

The United loanee featured 32 times for Salford scoring three times and providing four assists as the Ammies qualified for the play-offs.

But, Salford suffered penalty heartache as they lost to Stockport on penalties, ending their season and seemingly Galbraith’s time with the club.

According to The Real EFL, Middlesbrough, managed by ex United midfielder Michael Carrick are now keen on the midfielder.

The report adds that Boro are just one of a number of clubs interested and it could be a tricky move for them to pull off.

Carrick’s men remain in the Championship next season after losing 1-0 to Coventry City in the play-off semi finals.

Boro will be hoping that Carrick’s links to United could help them secure Galbraith’s signature as they aim to bolster their squad for another promotion push next season.

The midfielder took to Instagram to announce his departure from Old Trafford.


He said: “After six years, my time has come to an end with this magnificent club, Manchester United. I want to thank the club, coaching staff & players for helping me become a better player, a better person and for making me feel at home.

“My earliest ambition as a boy was to become a professional footballer and I’m forever grateful to the club for giving me the opportunity and support to fulfil that dream.

“It’s been a privilege and I feel very fortune to have been able to represent the club.

“I step into the next chapter of my career a more mature, round-rounded person and I’m excited for what’s next.”
