Brandon Williams ready to leave Manchester United in search of regular football
The 20-year-old enjoyed a breakout season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in 2019/20. He has, however, played a largely peripheral role this time around. As of now, he has made just one Premier League appearance.
The full-back’s last Premier League start came in the 2-0 win over Manchester City back in March. It is fair to say that the Covid-19 lockdown also put an end to his prominent role.
With opportunities harder to come by, Williams is keen to leave on a temporary basis this January. The youngster prefers to join another top flight side.
With Alex Telles and Luke Shaw firmly established as the club’s top choices at left-back, Williams may indeed need to leave to garner more game time.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Axel Tuanzebe, and Victor Lindelof are the club’s preferred options on the right flank. A shift to the other side isn’t likely to improve his chances either. (h/t Express)
Newcastle United and Southampton are both keen on securing the 20-year-old’s services this month. With the player too now keen on a switch, it remains to be seen if an agreement can be reached. (h/t MEN)
As things stand, Newcastle appears to have stolen a march over the Saints. The Magpies are also understood to have agreed on a deal in principle to loan Williams until the end of the season. (h/t Mirror)

With Jamal Lewis struggling to settle in at Newcastle, Williams has an opportunity to ensure he can make the position his own on Tyneside.
With his development having stalled, a temporary switch would be the best step forward to get him back on track.
