Confirmed: Cameron Borthwick-Jackson joins Leeds on one-year loan deal

Manchester United’s Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has left the Theatre of Dreams on a one-year loan deal, the club have announced. To my surprise, the Mancunian will join our fierce rivals, Leeds United for the next season… Which rather grinds my gears if I’m being honest.

Of all the teams in the Championship that would have wanted such a talented player, he has to choose Leeds? I get that they are one of the bigger clubs in the division, but why make the move to one of our biggest rivals, and why would the club allow it?

After a failed move at Wolverhampton Wanderers last year, Borthwick-Jackson needs regular playing time this season. Under Louis van Gaal, the talented left-back flourished, but Jose Mourinho hasn’t even given him a sniff of a chance thus far.

In the handful of top-level games that the 20-year-old has played in, he’s impressed. Positionally, he’s great, and the crosses he fizzes into the box are nothing short of delightful.

One thing is for certain, Leeds are getting an excellent player, and I just hope that he gets the regular football that he requires to continue to develop. Hopefully, he’ll have a good season personally, but I don’t want him to be aiding a Leeds United promotion run…
