​DONE DEAL: Man Utd starlet Willock heads north to St. Johnstone

Young Manchester United defender Matty Willock has gone to Scottish side St. Johnstone on a temporary loan deal.

The 21-year-old midfielder only recently returned to the club after a loan spell at FC Utrecht.

He will now move on to the Scottish league as his development progresses.

Willock is yet to feature in a first team squad for a competitive game, and he only managed three starts during his time at Utrecht. St. Johnstone manager Tommy Wright was pleased with the deal.

"I'm really pleased to get 21 year old Matty who has been on loan at FC Utrecht," he said.

"He is a midfielder who possesses a lot of qualities, very comfortable on the ball, physically as well.

"He's comfortable playing as a holding midfielder or attacking midfielder.

"When you get someone who's gone through the academy at Arsenal and Man United he's going to provide real quality in the midfield for us."
