Manchester United set to confirm youngster leaving on loan

2 min read

Manchester United look set to confirm the loan departure of a young player this week.

Dylan Levitt, Di’Shon Bernard and Matej Kovar are three of the United Under-23 contingent who are set to be loaned out this summer and it appears one outgoing deal could be done tomorrow.

MEN Sport understands the loan departure this week will not be Tahith Chong. The 20-year-old winger is in talks over a temporary exit from the club but nothing will be agreed until the conclusion of United’s Europa League campaign, with Chong with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s 30-man squad out in Cologne.

It looks unlikely that it will be James Garner either, with the young midfielder also with the United squad in Germany along with Ethan Galbraith, Teden Mengi and Ethan Laird. United are preparing for their Europa League semi-final versus Sevilla on Sunday.

There has been significant Championship interest in midfield duo Garner and Levitt, with Swansea City leading the race to sign the former.

Centre-back Bernard, 19, made his sole senior appearance in the Europa League game against Astana in November. Levitt also debuted in the same contest, which featured Garner and Kovar was on the bench.

Under-23s boss Neil Wood spoke to the MEN earlier in the week about loaning out certain youngsters.

“If they are not going to be part of the first team there is no reason to keep them playing in the Under-23s, it wouldn’t be right for their own individual development,” he said.

“They’re at the point now where they need to go play in the league, play in a first-team environment, playing in those games every week where they are going to be stretched and find it hard.

“My advice to them is there is a strong possibility if they go out, prove themselves and do really well there is a chance that the manager might like what he sees and bring them back to be part of his first-team squad.

“The incentive is there, it is not like they’re going on loan and we are trying to find an exit strategy for them. They are going on loan to show how good they are, to show what they can do and to make an impact at the club they are going to be at, and hopefully come back to be a Manchester United player.”
