Manchester United will reportedly allow Brandon Williams a loan move next season, in news that may interest Newcastle United.

The full-back is currently on the fringes at Old Trafford.

The star can play on either side of the defence. But he has Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Luke Shaw and Alex Telles all ahead of him right now.

Williams was linked with a move to Newcastle last season.

The Shields Gazette actually reported that a deal in principle was agreed for a loan move.

That never came to fruition though, with the Northern Echo reporting days later that a change of heart from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer prompted the Toon to walk away.

But now, the MEN claim Williams has been granted permission to go out on loan for 2021/22. Newcastle’s previous interest is mentioned.

 

A transfer opportunity for Newcastle?

Newcastle are said to be in a tricky financial position this transfer window.

It has therefore been claimed moves for free agents and loan deals are likely.

As a result, the club may well now reignite their previous interest in Williams.

The £65,000-a-week star (Spotrac) has experience playing as a full-back on both sides. He has also operated as a wing-back.

That versatility could very much appeal to Steve Bruce.
