Manchester United midfielder James Garner is expected to go out on loan to seek regular first-team game time next season.
Garner has been outstanding for Neil Wood’s Under-23’s and has clearly outgrown age-group football, but his first-team opportunities have been extremely limited.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer handed the 19-year-old star just three senior starts in the 2019/20 season, all of which came in the Europa League group stages.
Manchester Evening News report that Garner, along with fellow highly-regarded academy stars Dylan Levitt and Matej Kovar, will be allowed to go out on loan with Wood and head of first-team development Nicky Butt believing temporary switches will accelerate the trio’s development.
MEN have credited Swansea with an interest in Garner, and a new Championship club now appear to have entered the race to sign him.
According to FootballInsider, Huddersfield Town have registered an interest in the Birkenhead-born youngster and are keen to bring him to the John Smith’s Stadium this summer.
FootballInsider’s report notes that Garner came close to joining Sunderland in January, but he will be granted a loan move this summer and a move to West Yorkshire could be a possibility.
Meanwhile, United goalkeeper Joel Pereira could join Garner at Huddersfield with the 24-year-old also linked with a move to the Terriers.
The Sun claim Huddersfield want to wrap up a deal for Pereira quickly with Solskjaer happy for the Portuguese shot-stopper to make yet another temporary exit.
