Southampton closing in on Williams’ loan move

Southampton are increasingly confident of signing Manchester United defender Brqndoin Willims on loan for the coming season.

The South Coast side were interested ion the 20-year old last summer, but Uited were reluctant to let him leave then after his breakthrough season with the club.

However, with limited opportunities during the last campaign – he started just five games and made 14 appearances in all, – its is now felt best for his continued development if he is playing regular first-team football.

The Saints are in the market for a new left-back, having lost Ryan Bertrand when hs contract expired. He has subsequently joined Leicester City on a  free transfer.

England under-21 international Williams is a  graduate of the Manchester United youth academy, and made a his senior debut  in 2019 as a substitute in an EFL Cup tie with Rochdale.

Last August he signed a new four-year deal at Old Trafford, with the option of  a further year.
