Hockenhull seals Brentford transfer

Thursday 23 July 2020 14:00

Manchester United Academy defender Ben Hockenhull has completed a move to Championship club Brentford.

The young centre-back signed a third-year scholarship registration agreement with United after the Academy season was curtailed due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Ben Hockenhull strides forward during the FA Youth Cup win over Leeds at Old Trafford.
He has now sealed a move to the Bees, who are in the Championship play-offs, following significant interest from a variety of clubs, after United provided assistance to support Ben in finding a new team.

Hockenhull joined United when he was nine years old and featured 22 times for Neil Ryan’s Under-18s side over the last two seasons, including in the FA Youth Cup.

Indeed, the 18-year-old played his penultimate game for the club in the FA Youth Cup quarter-final victory over Wigan Athletic at Old Trafford. 

Everybody at Manchester United would like to wish Ben well for the future following his departure.

We are all United! Get behind the Reds! On sale now, get the new adidas training kit.
