Manchester United defender Ethan Laird has joined Queens Park Rangers on loan for the 2022/23 season.

The 21-year-old helped Bournemouth achieve promotion to the Premier League last season, after joining on a temporary move in January, following the end of his successful period at Swansea City.

Laird, who has been with United since the age of 10, spent pre-season with the first-team, featuring twice on the tour of Thailand and Australia, and also in the game against Rayo Vallecano at Old Trafford.

The full-back will now join up with new QPR boss Michael Beale. Laird could make his debut as early as Tuesday night, in the Championship game against Blackpool, subject to confirmation of registration by the FA and EFL.

The England Under-19 international will gain further experience in the Championship, continuing his progress in a new environment, whilst being closely monitored and supported by United staff.

Everybody would like to wish Ethan the best of luck this term, as we follow his progress at Loftus Road.
