Three Man Utd stars to be loaned out by Solskjaer for regular first-team minutes

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to send a number of youth prospects out on loan this season in search of regular first-team football.

United have a rich history of utilising their academy and Solskjaer handed eight academy graduates their first-team debuts last season.

Brandon Williams, Di'Shon Bernard, Ethan Laird, Teden Mengi, Ethan Galbraith, Dylan Levitt, Largie Ramazani and D'Mani Mellor all got their first taste of senior football under Solskjaer.

Williams has cemented himself as a key member of the squad, while Ramazani has since been released but according to the Manchester Evening News, three academy starlets could be set for lower league loan spells.

Midfielders James Garner and Levitt and goalkeeper Matej Kovar are all set for spells away from Old Trafford, with Kovar on the radar of League One sides Swindon Town and Doncaster Rovers.

A number of Championship sides have been monitoring Garner, with Swansea City, Sheffield Wednesday and Bournemouth all linked with the 19-year-old.

Championship sides are also believed to be interested in Levitt.

When asked about the prospect of some of United's youngsters going out on loan to gain valuable experience, under-23s boss Neil Wood told Goal : "I think if they’re not going to be around the first team, then the natural next step is to go out on loan, so they can show how good they are.

"It wouldn’t be right to keep them in the 23s for another season just to bolster the squad, or because we’ve gone up a league and we’ll be playing tougher opposition. It wouldn’t make sense to hold them back in their careers.

"At the minute, Jimmy (Garner) is training with the first team, Teden (Mengi) and Ethan (Laird) are there too, while we’ve also got Dylan Levitt, who is a very good player and ready to go out on loan.

"It's the same story with Di’Shon Bernard, who is ready for a tougher test. So, what we want for them is to go and play once or twice a week in a professional environment, where there's pressure to perform and it’s down to them to deliver.

"They’re confident and I think they'd do well, so there’s every chance they could come back and have a big impact at this club.”
