Laird talks up Man Utd future after MK Dons loan success

Ethan Laird says he sees his future with Manchester United.

The fullback spent part of last season on-loan with MK Dons.

Asked by Inside United if the plan was to return over the summer to discuss any plans, he replied: “Yeah, of course. I mean, that's the club I'm at and that's where I want to be.

“Who knows, I can't really give you a set answer on my future just yet, but I know that my long-term aim is to establish myself with United. Let's just see what happens in the summer."

Laird impressed in defence and attack for MK Dons.

"Honestly, every game means a little bit more," he admitted. “I can't lie to you because it's points on the board and it's people's lives, you now. But more it's been the physicality of it for me, just dealing with players that are almost twice as big as you, jumping up for headers, this and that, knowing you're going to get hit, but you have to go for it anyway.

“You have to fly back and forward but everything else has been kind of similar. I can't lie to you. But yeah, that's, that's pretty much the main difference, the physicality part of it and a few tactical changes."
