Former Carlisle United No2 Lee Dykes has caught the eye of Manchester United, according to reports.
The ex-Blues assistant has impressed with his work as a recruiting boss at Premier League club Brentford.
And Dykes has considered that for a similar role at Old Trafford.
However, the prospects of the former Brunton Park man moving to Man Utd have now been downplayed.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reported today that a switch for Dykes was now “unlikely” despite the interest of the Red Devils.
It is unlikely that Brentford has now heard of Lee Dykes’ signing to join Manchester United, despite interest. He is expected to stay with Brentford as they want to keep him strong at the club. #BrentfordFC

“He is expected to stay at Brentford as they really want to keep him at the club,” Romano wrote.
Dykes has been with Brentford for the past three years and has played a key role in their climb to the top.
He was with the Blues under Keith Curle’s regime as a recruiter and joint assistant manager before later joining Bury.
Former Liverpool player Michael Edwards and Middlesbrough’s head of football Kieron Scott are also reportedly of interest to Man Utd.
