It’s great news to hear Mickey T has now got the all clear!

The ex-Wales international took to Twitter to announce the brilliant news: ‘After a massive operation I have just found out today I am cancer free.

‘I still have a 9 week chemo course as an insurance policy and a long road to recovery.

‘Thank you for all the support and especially to the people who operated on me and saved my life.’

Thomas joined United in 1978 and spent three seasons at Old Trafford.

He also played for Wrexham, Everton, Brighton, Stoke, Chelsea, West Brom, Derby, Shrewsbury, Leeds and Stoke.

Most United fans of a younger generation would recognise his voice from punditry on MUTV.

Fingers crossed the 9 weeks of chemo goes to plan and Thomas gets back to full strength soon.

All of our best wishes are with Thomas!
