MANCHESTER UNITED have sold goalkeeper Nathan Bishop to Sunderland.
The 23-year-old has dropped down a division to join the Black Cats on a three-year deal.
Bishop's departure from Old Trafford comes just days after he hospitalised Wrexham striker Paul Mullin.
The pair were involved in a collision during a heated friendly in the US last week, with Mullin suffering a punctured lung.
Fans inside the stadium booed Bishop after the incident before he was substituted at half-time.
He later issued a public apology to Mullin after being the victim of an angry response from Wrexham staff.

The League Two side's owner Ryan Reynolds also reached out to praise Bishop for how he handled the aftermath of the situation.
Bishop has now left United, though, with his move to Sunderland confirmed on Wednesday.
Upon joining the Championship club, he said: "You see the direction that the Club is going, playing young players and allowing them to express themselves and push on in a great league.
"I think that is so exciting, so I want to come in and earn the right to play for such a great team and a great Club."
