Elegant on the ball, but strong in the tackle, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson is comfortable playing as a left-footed centre-back, and at left-back.
The Flixton-born defender made his United Under-21s debut aged just 16, as a second-half substitute against Bolton Wanderers, and adapted well to first-team football when called upon during Louis van Gaal’s reign. A shock senior debut came as a substitute at home to West Bromwich Albion on 7 November 2015, and the unflappable defender impressed with a nerveless display of real composure. By the end of the 2015/16 campaign United’s no.43 had 14 first-team outings to his name, including appearances against Chelsea and Liverpool, and the season culminated with him being awarded the Denzil Haroun Reserve Player of the Year trophy. His crossing ability had earned many plaudits. In May 2016, the defender signed a new contract tying him to Old Trafford until 2020, with an option to extend it a further year. He was then sent to Championship outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers on loan to gain some experience, putting in some good showings in his seven games. Following last season’s spell at Wolves, Borthwick-Jackson spent the first half of 2017/18 on loan at another Championship club, Leeds United, before returning to Old Trafford in January 2018 where he spent the rest of the season playing for the Reds' Under-23s.
