Manchester United: Fans buzzing about James Garner development

Manchester United have promised 18-year-old James Garner first-team action this season, according to the Manchester Evening News.

It is also being reported by the publication that a full-time promotion to the first-team is inevitable.

Garner featured on the club’s tour of Asia this summer, as he scored in the side’s 2-0 win over Perth Glory.

The England youth international made 25 appearances across various age groups last season, including a solitary appearance in the Premier League in the 3-1 win away to Crystal Palace.

Garner’s promise of first-team football comes amid a restructure of the club’s academy, as ex-head of the academy Nicky Butt was appointed in the new role of head of first-team development.

The fans seemed excited at the news of Garner’s promise of first-team football and took to Twitter to tweet about it.

Here is a selection of tweets from Manchester United fans following the reports about Garner:
