Manchester United defender Liam Grimshaw has joined Morecambe on-loan.

The versatile 19-year-old defender, who can also operate in a holding role in midfield, is linking up with the Shrimps as part of a double deal after Wigan Athletic left-back Jordan Mustoe arrived earlier in the day.

Grimshaw captained the Reds in the first-ever foray into the UEFA Youth League after previously wearing the armband for Paul McGuinness' Under-18s. The teenager has made two substitute appearances in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League this term.
