Hannibal heads out on loan

Monday 15 January 2024 19:45

Manchester United midfielder Hannibal has joined Sevilla on loan for the remainder of the 2023/24 season.

The Tunisia international will ply his trade in La Liga after securing a switch to the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium.

He will hope to help Quique Sanchez Flores's men move up from 17th in the table, as they currently sit only one place above the relegation zone. Former Red Adnan Januzaj is also on the club's books.

After joining our youth ranks from Monaco in 2019, the 20-year-old made his Premier League debut in the 2-1 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers, on the final day of the 2020/21 season, impressing with his blend of skill and tenacity.

A loan spell with Birmingham City in the Championship last term helped to further his experience.

Upon his return to Manchester, he made an impact in pre-season and marked his first senior appearance under Erik ten Hag with a goal, in the 3-1 home reverse to Brighton & Hove Albion in September.

Nine further first-team appearances have followed, across the Premier League, UEFA Champions League, Carabao Cup and Emirates FA Cup.

He came on in the closing stages of the FA Cup third-round win at Wigan Athletic earlier this month and will look to obtain regular game time in Spain.

Best of luck to Hannibal!
