Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has become the latest Manchester United player to go out on loan for the 2018/19 season by joining Scunthorpe United.
The 21-year-old, who has plenty of first-team experience from Louis van Gaal’s time in charge, has signed for the League One club.
Borthwick-Jackson, who can play at left-back or central defence, has previously went out on loan with Wolves and Leeds United.
Scunthorpe have already been looking through the United youth system, with Devonte Redmond joining them on a similar basis last year. According to ManUtd.com, Borthwick-Jackson’s loan deal is still subject to Premier League clearance and league ratification.
Dean Henderson (Sheffield United) and Matty Willock (St Mirren) have already been sent out on loan by United, and it wouldn’t surprise us if that list grew between now and the end of the transfer window.
Borthwick-Jackson told the official United website: “I’m buzzing to be here and can’t wait to get started. Scunthorpe really wanted me to come here and I couldn’t really turn it down.
“I’ve been at Manchester United since I was six years old and I’ve progressed all the way through. I managed to get my opportunity in the first team in the 2015/16 season, that was a great season for me and kick-started my career.
“But I need to play regular games and I’m at the age where I should be playing regular first-team football.
“I know it’ll be more a lot more physical in League One, so I’ll have to see how I adapt to that and hopefully I can impress.”
We would like to with Borthwick-Jackson the very best at Scunthorpe.
