Manchester United agree deal that sees 23-year-old leave for Championship club

Nathan Bishop looks set to leave Manchester United this summer.

The goalkeeper has been heavily linked with a permanent move away from Old Trafford and it looks as though his destination will be the Stadium of Light, as Northern Echo reports that the Red Devils have agreed a deal with Sunderland.

Bishop, 23, signed from Southend United in January 2020 – back when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was manager. However, three years on, he is still yet to make his senior debut for the club.

He spent the 2021/2022 season on loan with League Two outfit Mansfield Town but returned to Old Trafford last summer to play Under-21s football for the following campaign.

Now, the Black Cats are willing to take a chance on the inexperienced goalkeeper and grant him experience in the Championship.

However, they’ll have to wait a few weeks before welcoming in on Wearside, as Erik ten Hag is unwilling to sanction Bishop’s exit until United finish their pre-season tour of the United States.
