Manchester United player closes in on late EFL move

Manchester United defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson is closing in on a deadline-day move to League One side Tranmere Rovers, according to Football Insider.

The 22-year-old has already completed his medical and finalised the paperwork, ahead of a season-long loan move.

Borthwick-Jackson has made 14 senior appearances for Manchester United, but his last outing came under Louis van Gaal over three years ago.

The left-back is currently out of favour at Old Trafford and has spent the past few seasons out on loan.

Championship Picks

The defender spent last season on loan at Scunthorpe United in League One, where he scored two goals in 33 appearances in all competitions.

He has also spent time on loan in the Championship in the past, but struggled to make an impact during spells with Leeds United and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Borthwick-Jackson has not been included in the matchday squad at Manchester United this season and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is prepared to allow the player to leave on loan in order for him to experience regular first-team football.

Tranmere boss Micky Melon is looking to strengthen his defensive options before the transfer deadline, after his side were promoted to League One via the play-offs last season.

The Verdict

This could be a good signing for Tranmere. Things haven’t worked out for Borthwick-Jackson at Manchester United since he burst onto the scene a few years ago, but he’s still a decent player.

He’s more than capable of making an impact in League One and he’s already got some experience in the third tier, having spent last season on loan at Scunthorpe.

Borthwick-Jackson isn’t going to get a chance at Manchester United this season, but he’s pretty much guaranteed to start for Tranmere in League One.

He will be determined to prove that he deserves another chance at Old Trafford and could turn out to be a good signing for Tranmere.
