Willock completes loan move to Crawley Town

Manchester United midfielder Matty Willock has completed a second loan move away from the club this season by linking up with Crawley Town.

The 22-year-old joined St Mirren at the start of the campaign after a previous spell with fellow Scottish side St Johnstone last term.

He returned to United and played for 70 minutes in the outstanding 3-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the Under-23s' Premier League International Cup group match last Friday.

Crawley must have been impressed, with head coach Gabriele Cioffi wrapping up a deal on deadline day for the League Two side.

There is a chance Willock could make his debut in the game at Bury on Saturday as he follows Ethan Hamilton (Rochdale) and Regan Poole (Newport County) in clinching loan moves during this window.

It is the fourth temporary switch for the Londoner, who has also had a stint in the Netherlands with FC Utrecht.

Willock's brothers Chris and Joe play for Benfica and Arsenal respectively.

Everyone at the club wishes Matty well for his time at the People's Pension Stadium.
