PositionForward

One of Manchester United's academy brightest talents, local boy Danny was soon perceived as a star in the making.

A tall, powerful striker, he has a lovely delicate touch and quickly made an impression, scoring spectacularly on his Premier League debut.

Danny's contract at Manchester United was extended to June 2013 in December 2009 and to June 2016 in August 2012.

Came to the fore during 2011-12 as Manchester United's first choice striker alongside Wayne Rooney and was seen as a likely replacement for his mentor when Rooney was suspended for the first two games of England's Euro 2012 campaign.

He was included in Roy Hodgson's 2014 World Cup squad.
