Ethan Galbraith is closing in on a loan move to Doncaster Rovers.
The League One side is currently managed by former United academy product Richie Wellens and the move should grant Galbraith, a Northern Ireland international, the chance to play regular first-team football.
The latest news linking Galbraith with Doncaster comes from The Athletic’s Laurie Whitwell.

On top of that, Whitwell adds that Ethan Laird is in talks with Swansea City over a loan move.
Doncaster Rovers have already made four signings this summer with United connections – including the manager. The others include former United academy graduates Ro-Shaun Williams, Tommy Rowe and Aidy Barlow.
With Galbraith they are getting a versatile central midfielder who can also play at right-back, as seen during the first-team’s pre-season. He also captained the U23s on several occasions last season.
He will learn a lot from playing week-in week-out in League One, and next year there could be an even bigger step up as long as he continues to improve.
It bodes well that he’s already got a taste of international football.
