Manchester United on Friday confirmed the arrival of goalkeeper Tom Heaton on a two-year deal.
The 35-year-old spent 13 years with the club at the start of his career, before joining Aston Villa until the end of the 2020/21 season.
He is not the first player to re-join the club, and we take a look at four others.

🏴 Paul Scholes
One of the finest midfielders of his era, Scholes came through the ranks at Old Trafford, marking his debut with a brace against Port Vale in the League Cup in 1994.
He went on to win all that was available on club level, before retiring at the end of the 2010/11 season.
However, he made a return to action in January 2012 and played until he hung up his boots for good in 2013.
🇫🇷 Paul Pogba
Pogba, just like Scholes, grew at United’s academy, before leaving in 2012 in search of first-team action.
He joined Juventus, where he made a name for himself before United paid through their nose to take him back to Old Trafford in 2018.
He has since become an integral part of the club with scintillating performances week in, week out.
🇦🇺 Mark Bosnich
Australian Bosnich was a non-contract player at United as a teenager. He made his senior debut against Wimbledon in 1990 and kept a clean sheet. He however left the following season and returned after over eight years.
He was signed by Sir Alex to replace Peter Schmeichel after the Treble season, in 1999.
🏴 Les Sealy
The late keeper initially joined United on loan from Luton Town and broke into the side at the end of the 1989/90 season.
He however left for Aston Villa during the 1991/92 season, before returning to Old Trafford in early 1993 on a free.
