Brandon Williams has sealed a loan move away from Man United. He’ll spend the 2021/22 season with Norwich City.
Manchester united’s first-team is looking incredibly stacked at the moment, meaning some players will inevitably have to get their minutes elsewhere.
Amongst them is Brandon Williams, who will spend the campaign with Premier League side, Norwich City.
The Englishman, who made his first-team breakthrough in 2019, can play in either full-back role. No doubt Williams will be hoping for regular starts under Daniel Farke with The Canaries.
Norwich City confirmed that the 50-app United starlet would join the club earlier today. The player himself looked delighted, proudly wearing his jersey as he’s set for a campaign away from Old Trafford.
Loan moves have always been very hit and miss. You look at the likes of Jesse Lingard, who had success with Leicester in the early-going of his career. More recently, the same can be said for Axel Tuanzebe.
This presents Williams with a chance to start games week-in-week-out; something which United cannot offer the full-back at this point in his career.
The goal is for Williams to prove Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was wrong to let him leave. The good news is the Harpurhey-born youngster will have a full season to do exactly that – and I’m definitely behind him all the way.
It’s so easy to forget that Williams is still just twenty years of age. He’s been in and around the first-team for a couple of years already, so the talent is obviously there.
He will come back a miles better player, hungry to regain his place in that United squad. I will not be betting against him.
Good luck, Brandon!
