Four Man United youngsters set to be loaned out next season
According to a report from Goal.com (h/t Metro), Manchester United have identified four U23 players that will be sent out on loan in the 2020/21 campaign.
Those four players, that will be allowed to leave in order to gain some vital first-team experience, are midfielders James Garner, Dylan Levitt along with full-back Ethan Laird and goalkeeper Matej Kovar. (h/t Metro)
Among the four, Garner, Levitt and Laird have all had some taste of first-team football. Indeed, Garner had made his first-team debut in 2018/10 season itself, once Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over from Jose Mourinho.
Levitt and Laird made their senior debuts in the 2019/20 season, featuring in the UEFA Europa League. In fact, Laird has been training with the first-team since lockdown due to Axel Tuanzebe’s injury.
However, they are unlikely to be involved a great deal in the first-team next season. The midfield department is absolutely packed with in-form players, making it hard for either of Garner and Levitt to break into the side on a regular basis.
Laird is behind Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Diogo Dalot and the recently-returned Timothy Fosu-Mensah at the right-back slot. Kovar, on the other hand, has the likes of David de Gea, Sergio Romero and Joel Pereira in front of him, while Dean Henderson will also be back at Old Trafford.

The report claims that Garner is already attracting interest from Swansea City and Sheffield Wednesday. Not much is mentioned about suitors for the rest of the players.
Nevertheless, it will be a good move for the quartet, as it would help them gain valuable experience, instead of just warming the bench at Old Trafford.
