Tranmere Rovers are hoping to sign Manchester United defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson on loan, according to Football Insider.
The 22-year-old is currently out of favour at Old Trafford and is not in manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans for the coming season.
Borthwick-Jackson has made 14 senior appearances for Manchester United, but his last appearance came under Louis van Gaal over three years ago.
He has not been included in the matchday squad this season and Solskjaer is willing to let him to leave on loan to allow him experience regular first-team football.
Tranmere were promoted to League One last season and manager Micky Mellon is keen to strengthen his defensive options by bringing in another left-back before the transfer deadline for lower league clubs closes on Monday.
The left-back spent last season on loan at Scunthorpe United and scored two goals in 33 appearances in all competitions for the Iron, although he was unable to save the team from relegation from League One.
The defender has also spent time on loan in the Championship in the past, but struggled to make an impact during spells with Leeds United and Wolves.
This could be a good signing for Tranmere. Even though things haven’t worked out for Borthwick-Jackson at Manchester United since he burst onto the scene a few years ago, he’s still a decent player and he’s more than capable of making an impact in League One.
This could be a good move for the left-back too. It will allow him to experience regular first-team football and he will be determined to get his career back on track and prove that he deserves another chance at Manchester Untied.
He’s already got some experience in League One too, having spent last season on loan at Scunthorpe, so he will know exactly what to expect from the division.
