United's players, minus those on international duty, have a change of venue for training this week.
Chris Wilder, his staff and the players have travelled to train in better climes in the build up to the international break.
Assistant boss Alan Knill explains why the United contingent have made the decision to fly to Spain to continue to prepare for the remainder of the season.
He commented: "It's a change of environment and the lads are enjoying it. We have talked about it for a while and it is the right decision. The facilities are really good here, Shirecliffe is great, but this makes a nice change.
"The plan is to do a bit of work but also for the lads to get a bit of rest. It is a demanding league, it is physically and mentally tiring and this seemed like the right opportunity to take the lads away and it has worked out really well."
