Wolverhampton Wanderers have announced the signing of Manchester United defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson on a season-long loan deal.
The 19-year-old left-back, who made his first-team United debut last season, will spend the rest of the current season at the ambitious Championship side.
Borthwick-Jackson has decided to spend some time on loan in order to get some valuable playing time, which is a smart career choice.
Given Luke Shaw’s recent return from injury, Borthwick-Jackson would have struggled to get enough time on the pitch for Jose Mourinho’s team this season.
That being said, he’s still believed to be highly-rated at Old Trafford and that notion was cemented by Mourinho’s decision to hand him a new 4-year contract at the end of May.
Borthwick-Jackson will have more than enough chances to establish himself at United as he’s only 19 years old.
He can now look forward to playing regularly at Wolverhampton, who were recently bought by a Chinese conglomerate.
Wolverhampton’s new owners are believed to have close ties with Mourinho’s agent, Jorge Mendes, and were quick to appoint Italy legend Walter Zenga as manager.
The Wolves are definitely going to fight for promotion this season and Borthwick-Jackson is talented enough to make a difference in their team.
