Man Utd defender Max Taylor ready for next move

Manchester United defender Max Taylor is preparing for his next move.

Taylor is ready and raring for regular first-team football as the Manchester United defender prepares to leave Old Trafford and start anew after overcoming cancer.

"In the summer I'll be going to a new club, which is exciting," the 21-year-old told the PA news agency.

"It was agreed when I signed my extension (last summer) really, that I'd have a year out on loan playing football and stuff and then I would move on at the age of 21 if things didn't change.

"We sort of knew what was going to happen and it's not something I'm spiteful about, I want to go and play men's football and if that's not going to happen here it's going to have to be somewhere else.

"I'll always be thankful to United for all the experiences they've given me.

"They were great all throughout treatment and past treatment, even in the coronavirus period.

"They were great in terms of saying 'listen, this is going to be the plan' and we both spoke openly to each other about what were going to be the plans for the next few seasons and things like that."
