Man United defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson joins Scunthorpe on loan

Manchester United defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has joined Scunthorpe United on a season-long loan deal.

The League One club want him to replace Conor Townsend who is primed to join West Brom.

The defender is set to seal his move to the Championship side this weekend for a fee in the region of £600,000.

Borthwick-Jackson spent part of last season on loan at Leeds, but only managed to make six appearances in all competitions.

He told Scunthorpe’s official website: ‘I’ve been at Manchester United since I was six years old and I’ve progressed all the way through.

‘I managed to get my opportunity in the first team in the 2015/16 season, that was a great season for me and kick-started my career.

‘I know it’ll be more a lot more physical in League One, so I’ll have to see how I adapt to that and hopefully I can impress.’

The 21-year-old made his professional debut under Louis van Gaal but has struggled to make an impact with Jose Mourinho in charge.
