Borthwick-Jackson and Mitchell facing Man Utd release

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Demetri Mitchell face being cut loose by Manchester United this summer.

The Manchester Evening News says Borthwick-Jackson, 23, has not played for the club since he signed a four-year contract in May 2016 and endured a slew of disastrous loans at Wolves, Leeds United, Scunthorpe United, and Tranmere Rovers. His season-long spell with Tranmere was cut short in January and Borthwick-Jackson is currently with Oldham Athletic in League Two until the end of the season.

United have the option of an additional year on Borthwick-Jackson's deal but are set to let him leave on a free. United did likewise with Antonio Valencia and James Wilson last year.

Mitchell, also 23, has only played once for United - on the final day of the 2016-17 season - and is approaching the last two months of his deal. The left-back had two spells on loan with Hearts in 2018 but has not played since suffering a knee injury in February 2019.

Mitchell returned to training in September and outlined his intention to regain fitness by playing for the Under-23s, yet has not featured for United's second string whatsoever.
