Manchester United have confirmed that young defender George Tanner has joined Morecambe on a season-long loan deal.
The right-back joins the League Two outfit to gain regular first-team football after making 20 appearances for United’s u23 side last season.
It’s going to be difficult for Tanner to make it into the first-team at the club with the Reds currently looking particularly healthy in his position.
Recent new signings at right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot have both settled into life well at Old Trafford. Meanwhile, club captain Ashley Young can also cover in the full-back position.
Manchester Evening News journalist Samuel Luckhurst has also confirmed that 19-year-old midfielder Aidan Barlow is expected to complete a loan move to Norwegian side Trosmo.
We wish Tanner and Barlow the best of luck in their respective loan moves.
