Manchester United defender Ethan Laird has joined MK Dons on loan for the remainder of the 2020/21 season.

The 19-year-old, who has been with United since the age of 10, embarks on his first temporary move away from the club.

Laird made his senior bow last season, in the Europa League tie against Astana, and also featured against AZ Alkmaar at Old Trafford the following week.

The full-back joins the Dons’ following significant interest in taking him on loan. He is set to feature in an attacking system and excellent playing environment with the League One outfit.

The England Under-19 international will now join up with Russell Martin’s squad and could make his debut as early as this weekend, in the Emirates FA Cup third-round tie against Burnley.

Everybody at United would like to wish Ethan the best of luck this term as we follow his progress at Stadium MK.
