Many Manchester United fans have been talking about the latest update involving Brandon Williams, which emerged on social media on Tuesday.
Liam Kennedy from the Shields Gazette has reported that Newcastle United are understood to have agreed the framework for a deal to sign the Man Utd defender on loan in the January transfer window. The report claims that Williams has been told that he can leave Old Trafford on a loan deal this month and Steve Bruce’s men are now leading the race to sign the Englishman.
Will a Newcastle move help Brandon Williams' development?
The report also states that Newcastle are just one of the clubs after Williams, as Ralph Hasenhuttl also has a liking for the defender. Williams is thought to be one of the potential loan deals that Bruce could be looking at. Apart from the Man Utd man, the Magpies are also looking to bring Jetro Willems back to the club.
Williams, currently 20, has fallen down the pecking order at left-back behind Luke Shaw and Alex Telles and as a result, he has struggled for minutes. The Englishman has made just one appearance in the Premier League, playing twice in the UEFA Champions League and twice in the League Cup (as per Transfermarkt).
In the 2019/20 season, Williams had played more often for the Red Devils, playing 17 league games and contributing to a couple of goals. He also played eight times in the UEFA Europa League for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men (as per Transfermarkt).
Solskjaer praised Williams last season and said: “He played a square pass into Mount [which led to their second goal] and he probably felt a bit responsible, but for the rest of the half he was absolutely outstanding. The kid has been out for a while and not played, and had the eye injury, but his character and personality out there was great, he kept going and kept going.”
This update about Williams caught the attention of many Man Utd fans, who made their opinion clear about the news.
What did Man Utd fans make of this update about Brandon Williams?
“He needs minutes for his development. I rate this loan move if it’s true. Steve Bruce could take care of him.”
“Shouldn’t be sending him there, toxic football club and he won’t get enough game time.”
“United should better sign a Rb this month, won’t make sense if they don’t, there is nobody backing up Bissaka.”
“Nooooooo, not that defensive team, go to Southampton or Leverkusen or whoever else was linked.”
“This will be a great move for Williams if he can get some playing time!”
