While Man United are looking to add one more players to their rank before the close of the season, they are not neglecting the youth rank of the squad as some of the youngsters will be sent on loan to develop themselves.
England and Man United versatile defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson is on the cusp of completing a loan move to Leeds United, this is according to report.
The 20-year-old joined the academy of United at 6 and ascended the grades of the club until he got a call up by Luis Van Gaal to feature for United. He made his debut against West Brom and went on to make 14 other appearances.
Borthwick-Jackson signed a new contract with United last summer before he was sent to Wolverhampton on loan. He failed to impress Phil Parkinson as the manager complained about the player’s fitness level.
However, the player has now completed medical at Elland road and paper works for the completion of the deal is now being finalised before an announcement by Leeds, reports Yorkshire evening post.
Borthwick-Jackson plays predominantly as a left back and he is expected to replace Charlie Taylor, who has joined Burnley.
Jose Mourinho has been accused of failing to give the youngsters in his rank the opportunity to shine, as he prefers established players. Nonetheless, since appointed to United’s helms, the Portuguese tactician has proved that to be untrue. Axel Tuanzebe and Marcus Rashford are the latest youngsters that Mourinho appears to impressed with.
Goodluck to Borthwick-Jackson.
