Man Utd academy chief Parry hints at loan plans for young trio

Manchester United plan to let several players depart on loan in January.

Angel Gomes, Tahith Chong, Brandon Williams and James Garner have all featured under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in league and cup competitions.

Their progress could stall with the arrival of new recruits and academy player performance manager Les Parry admits more outgoings are likely in January.

"We'll plan it out and we've identified four or five who might be going out in January. Obviously, our first-team manager has a say," he said.

“Angel, Tahith, and James could have gone out on loan but he wanted to keep them here and have a look at them on tour. So a decision will be made, no doubt, for January as well. Hopefully, all three will be in the first team and not going anywhere.

“They've been presented with an opportunity and they've taken the opportunity so now a couple of them are regulars on the team sheet each week. We've had opportunities that have cropped up from nowhere. That's football.

“Hopefully, some of the lads out on loan now will also catch the eye as some have gone out with a perception of their ability and where they'll end up but hopefully they'll come back and people will say maybe we've got a little diamond."
