Williams completes season-long loan move

Monday 23 August 2021 14:00

Manchester United full-back Brandon Williams will spend the 2021/22 campaign on loan at Premier League club Norwich City.

The 20-year-old made 14 Reds appearances in all competitions last season and will relish the opportunity to gain more first-team experience at Carrow Road over the next nine months.

Managed by Daniel Farke, Norwich earned promotion to the Premier League last term by winning the Championship.

It's a first loan move for Williams at Premier League new boys Norwich.

Williams will presumably compete for the first-choice left-back spot in Norwich's team, with the Canaries' only other player in that position being Dimitris Giannoulis.

The Manchester-born youth product broke into the United side in the 2019/20 season, making 36 appearances after an injury to Luke Shaw opened up a spot in the side.

With his hard work, aggressive tackling and direct running, Williams made a strong impression, but made fewer appearances last season due to Shaw's incredible consistency and the arrival of Alex Telles.

The second United player to find a loan move elsewhere in the Premier League – the first being Axel Tuanzebe at Aston Villa – Williams will return to United at the end of the 2021/22 season.

Best of luck, Brandon.
