Manchester United have added two players to their Premier League squad following transfer deadline day.

Well, deadline day was a quiet one for us Red Devils supporters. Manchester United’s highlight was probably securing a loan move for the ever-improving Teden Mengi, which tells you everything you need to know about the dullness that was February 1st, 2021…

In the aftermath, United have been busy. With a game against Southampton taking place tonight, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s boys need a massive bounce-back victory. That’ll be easier said than done, mind…

Before the game, the Manchester Evening News are reporting that United have added a pair of players to their Premier League squad. One, Amad Diallo, was expected. The other, Phil Jones, probably not so much…

Our Ivorian winger looked excellent on his U23s debut against Liverpool’s U23s over the weekend, scoring twice in the process. Fans, were, understandably, claiming that he’s ready for the first-team.

No doubt we’ll see Diallo in action at some point in the not too distant future, particularly if he continues to show he’s already too good for U23 level.

Jones’ case is interesting. Solskjaer rates the English centre-half pretty highly, though injuries have absolutely decimated his time in Manchester. Just look at Eric Bailly, it literally rendered him useless for a couple of years, while Jones’ injury problems are arguably even worse!

Personally, I’d be happy to see the back of Jones but now he’s here until the summer at the very least, he has my full support. I don’t think he’ll be starting Premier League games anytime soon, but we may see him involved in an FA Cup game or in the Europa League if we’re handed a decent draw or the result is comfortable.

Welcome to the action, lads!
