Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that out-of-favour Manchester United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak will be allowed to leave the club when his contract expires in the summer.

Kuszczak, 29, moved from West Bromich Albion to United in August 2006 but has spent most of his Old Trafford career as back-up for Edwin van der Sar until the Dutch veteran retired last summer.

Now, the Polish shot-stopper has fallen behind new signing David de Gea and Anders Lindegaard in the United pecking order – and Ferguson has confirmed he is set to quit Old Trafford at the end of the season.

“We have Tomasz Kuszczak but his contract is up in the summer and he doesn’t want to sign another,” Ferguson told United’s website.

“He wants to go and get regular football, but he’s been out of the picture for the last two months really so it makes it difficult for him to come back into the fold. He’s a very good goalkeeper.”

Ferguson opted to start Ben Amos ahead of Kuszczak as United beat Stoke City 2-0 at Old Trafford on Tuesday night, but the United boss admits that the 21-year-old will be unlikely to feature against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

“Ben did very well the other night,” Ferguson added. “He’s had his opportunities in the League Cup and played against Valencia the previous season.

“He’s had a little bit of experience but not the kind of experience you’d expect going into a game like the one at Stamford Bridge. But that’s something we’ll make a decision on later.”
