Manchester United: Fans react to emerging potential temporary Premier League switch for defender - Manchester United Transfer Rumours

A number of Manchester United fans have been reacting to the prospect of the Red Devils allowing defender Brandon Williams to leave the club before the transfer window closes.

United are set to add to their full-back options with the imminent arrival of FC Porto’s Alex Telles, and they have now fielded an enquiry from fellow Premier League side Southampton to take Williams to the club on loan for the rest of the campaign, according to Sky Sports.

If Manchester United do allow Williams to depart from Old Trafford on loan, they would be insistent on adding a clause into the agreement that would guarantee the 20-year-old regular game time over the course of the season, but that is something which Southampton are struggling to commit to, as per Sky Sports.

Williams signed a new deal with United back in August after a breakthrough campaign last term and is now under contract until 2024, but the versatile full-back, who can play down both the left and the right-hand sides, has only featured in the Carabao Cup for United so far this season.

The club was formed as Newton Heath LYR Football Club - what year were they formed?

That came after he enjoyed a long run in the team at times last season, making 17 Premier League appearances and 42 across all competitions (via Transfermarkt). It could therefore be ideal that he goes and gets some regular game time this term elsewhere.

Some United fans felt the Red Devils should make sure they hold onto him given they have already allowed Diogo Dalot to leave the club, while a few supporters did think that he would be better served going out and getting more experience.
