Manchester United Youngster Linked
Sunday, 30th Oct 2016 15:40

Town, Preston and Wigan are reportedly keen on signing Manchester United youngster Cameron Borthwick-Jackson on loan in January.

Left-back Borthwick-Jackson, who also plays at centre-half or in midfield, is currently on a season-long loan at Wolverhampton Wanderers but has made only six appearances for the Molineux club and could be recalled in January if the 19-year-old’s chances continued to be limited under the successor to recently sacked boss Walter Zenga.

According to various Sunday papers, The Blues, Lilywhites and Latics all targeted the U20 international in the summer and could revive their interest.

However, left-back wouldn’t appear to be an area of the squad manager Mick McCarthy will be looking to add to with Jonas Knudsen established as his first choice and his deputy Myles Kenlock having impressed his boss during his first appearance of the season against Rotherham yesterday.

Why do we need another loan player for the bench

Not a criticism of MM but I would love to know why we don't play with 3 cb's and wing backs in my opinion our squad of players would suit this formation

Inexperienced youngster on loan? Would show lack of ambition. We need permanent signings - building for the future and of course spending the cash from Murphy and his wages on an excellent fee replacement.

To be fair he couldn't do any worse than McCarthy....... o sorry you meant as a player!!!! Thought he was being brought in on loan to replace Mick!!! 😆😆😆

bedsitfc funny you should say that I have been thinking for some time we should go 3 CB given who McCarthy wants to shoe horn into the team and put the two youngsters at full back and tell them to attack particularly against the lower clubs at home. They wouldn't be expecting it and it might just work. If nothing else it would show genuine attacking intent.

No disrespect to the lad,but right now the only news i want to hear is that Mick has gone .

NSL added 16:56 - Oct 30
who cares about anything now

ronnyd added 17:04 - Oct 30
Doesn,t matter who comes in really as the style needs major change rather than personnel. Won,t happen until Mick goes though.

What is the point?

Lathers added 17:22 - Oct 30
I'm hoping MM isn't at the club come January. I can't bear another McCarthy January transfer window....AKA f-all happens as there's no one out there better than what we have already....

ArnieM added 17:22 - Oct 30
Priority in Jan window is the purchase of a big target man. We need physical presence up front.

Mr_Evans added 17:22 - Oct 30
This article makes no sense whatsoever - you state that the player plays at CB or in midfield, and then go on to say that LB is a position MM wouldn't be looking at as he has Knudsen and Kenlock !?

Paper talk.

Ipswichtown4life added 17:31 - Oct 30
These are pointless messages to be honest. anyone can be linked with anyone.. unless theirs a formal bid. then something can be put under consideration plus knudsen and kenlock are ahead of him unless kenlock leaves on loan.. pointless signing if you ask me.. we are so desperate for a target man and yet we linked to a player who we have two decent players already covering that positon

Ipswichtown4life added 17:33 - Oct 30
I dont fully blame Big Mick for our horrible down turn.. Evans does not give a donkey about the club.. yes he keeps us afloat.. WOW its ur damn job when you own a business.. what exactly is 3-5m going to do to your pocket? Mick will bring in the necessary players to challenge the top 6.. Thanks Evans for nothing once again

bluesince76 added 17:39 - Oct 30
Who cares is mick not gone yet.

surgery added 17:41 - Oct 30
We need a big target man like we need a hole in the head. That's probably what Super Mick wants so that hoofballs can be launched up to him. Mathie, Johnson, Stewart big target men? No, what we need is someone who resembles a professional footballer being coached by a competent manager

Seasider added 17:51 - Oct 30
Only paper talk.

Carsey&Bedsitfc.Agree about 3 at the back,went to this when pushing for equaliser against the 'mighty'Rotherham

PhilTWTD added 17:56 - Oct 30

Sorry, my error, he's primarily a left-back as I thought I'd already said, but hadn't. Amended.

surgery added 18:01 - Oct 30
But is he a proper full back? Is he capable of producing long throws that increase our goal tally?


Michael11 added 18:59 - Oct 30
He really could be the difference whether we finish 17th or 19th.

warwickblue added 19:22 - Oct 30
In the days when Town were still a footballing club this could have been a constructive move for the youngster. Now you'd have to ask what an earth the point of such a move would be.

trncbluearmy added 19:26 - Oct 30
Rule 1 never sign a mam u youngster with a double barrel name they are crap

neilvanlimbeek added 19:30 - Oct 30
Could be to replace Webster who will be off

or replace a fullback when Knudsen and Chambers have to go looking in the Car Park for the pass they overhit

iaintaylorx added 20:20 - Oct 30
Would definitely take! Played fair bit of first team last season for United, but why would he come here with Mick in charge!?

GiveusaWave added 20:40 - Oct 30
This is unlikely. We already have Knudsen and Kenlock. If he was a right back that's a different story, as we only have Emmanuel as a right back.
