Jack O'Connell has described United's promotion to the Premier League as 'unbelievable'.

Speaking following the celebrations after Sunday's finale at Stoke City, O'Connell remarked: "It's unbelievable, the supporters have been excellent all season and they've turned out in their numbers through thick and thin.

"We couldn't get the win or the title, but I hope we've done them proud again."

O'Connell added: "It hasn't properly sunk in yet, it probably won't until the fixtures come out, but first we've got to really enjoy what we've achieved.

"We started poorly at Stoke and came at us. But second-half it was end-to-end, and we just wanted to end on a high, that's the only slight disappointment."
