DONE DEAL: Man Utd keeper Jacob Carney joins Portadown FC

Manchester United goalkeeper Jacob Carney has changed loan clubs.

Carney has joined Portadown FC on loan until the end of the season after ending his spell at Brighouse Town.

The 19-year-old joined United in 2017 and signed his first professional contract at Old Trafford last summer.

He made his Under-23 debut for United in January 2020 and has had loan spells at non-league sides Stockbridge Park Steels and Brighouse Town.

Ports boss Matthew Tipton is delighted to have signed Carney.

"We have felt that we wanted to strengthen the goalkeeper department and through my connections with Alan Fettis at Manchester United we were offered Jacob," he said.

"After watching his videos we had no hesitation in taking him in. Jacob has had experience playing in the rough and tumble of non-league in England which was a massive positive for us.

"I must place on record my thanks to all at Manchester United for helping this move go through so smoothly."
