While Jose Mourinho has sent a transfer prayer to Man United Chief Executive Ed Woodward, a number of clear out is expected to be made before the close of the transfer window.

Man United have agreed to send England youngster and defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson on a season long  loan spell at Leeds United, according to report.

Borthwick-Jackson is a proud graduate of Man United academy – he joined the club at a tender age of six and ascended the grades of the youth rank and he was handed a contract extension at the club last summer following the impressive prospect shown.

The 20-year-old defender featured 10 times in the League for United in the Penultimate season under Luis Van Gaal but he spent last season on loan with Championship side Wolverhampton, where he was used sparingly as Paul Lambert questioned his fitness standards.

Jose Mourinho left the youngster out of United’s squad for their pre-season tour, and he is not in the Red Devils plan for the upcoming season. He is free to join any club of his choice and reports have indicated that he has agreed a move to Elland Road.

Borthwick-Jackson emerged as top target for Leeds United after they were beaten by Burnley to the signature of Charlie Taylor. The left-back is in line to lace his boots for Leeds for their Championship opener against Bolton on Saturday.
