Man Utd make decision on James Garner with two clubs leading race for loan transfer

Manchester United will allow young midfielder James Garner to go out on loan next season to aid his development. 

Garner is one of the most highly-rated graduates from United’s academy, and was handed his first-team debut by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in February 2019 in an away win over Crystal Palace.

However, the 19-year-old has managed just six first-team appearances for the Reds this term and clearly needs regular first-team football to progress after proving dominant in Neil Wood’s Under-23 side this season.

And according to the Manchester Evening News, United are willing to sanction a season-long loan switch to a Championship club this summer.

It is noted by the MEN that Swansea City and Sheffield Wednesday are leading the race to complete a move for the Garner.

Swansea, who crashed out of the Championship play-offs semi-finals against Brentford on Wednesday, would seem an ideal fit for the Birkenhead-born youngster.

Manager Steve Cooper has already coached Garner at England Under-17 level where the young Three Lions side managed to reach the 2018 U17 European Championships.

Cooper is known to demand an exciting style of play, and has already proven he can use the loan market efficiently with the impact of Liverpool starlet Rhian Brewster this season.

Garner is a young player with exceptional talent and will no doubt attract interest from a host of clubs, including Swansea this summer.
