Manchester United youngster Matty Willock has returned from his loan spell at FC Utrecht, to embark on another temporary spell at Scottish Premiership side St Johnstone.

The 21-year-old is yet to make his first-team debut at United, but came close during the latter stages of 2016/17 when he sat on the bench for the games against West Bromwich Albion and Crystal Palace.

A hot prospect, Willock joined the Eredivisie side, Utrecht, on 31 August 2017 and he went on to make three senior appearances during the first half of the season against SBV Vitesse, NAC Breda and Ajax.

With first-team opportunities at a premium, it was agreed that Matty's spell in Netherlands should come to an end and he will now spend the second half of 2017/18 in Scotland to work under Tommy Wright. 

St Johnstone are currently eighth in the Premiership and Willock could make his debut in Saturday's 15:00 GMT kick-off against Heart of Midlothian. 

Everybody at United wishes him luck for the rest of the campaign.
