Manchester United Academy player Shola Shoretire to be sent out on loan in the January transfer window
According to Manchester Evening News, Manchester United will consider loan offers for highly-rated 18-year-old forward Shola Shoretire, after blocking an exit for the youngster in the summer transfer window.
Shoretire is highly rated by Erik ten Hag and that was one of the reasons that he did not leave for a loan in the summer, as Ten Hag wanted to oversee the development of the player himself.
However, the situation has changed now with the arrival of Wout Weghorst and the waited return of Jadon Sancho adding to the emergence of Alejandro Garnacho Shoretire could be provided some minutes this season.
Hence, a loan move where the player can gain valuable first-team experience is being touted by the board which would make complete sense at the moment for the player.
He is regularly seen with first-team training and therefore there is no doubt that he has the ability to be part of the upcoming youngsters from the Academy.
A loan move would make him join the group of the club’s loanees from the Academy this season which includes Hannibal Mjebri, Amad Diallo, Tahith Chong and Ethan Laird.
All the above-mentioned loan deals have been working in tandem with what was expected and the players are gaining some unmatched first-team minutes which would be tremendous for their development.
Even first-team regular Academy graduate Anthony Elanga is touted to go out for a loan move which suggests a change in United’s recent policy regarding loan moves and if done right, how much impact they can create.
One of the most notable examples is Amad’s growth at Sunderland where so far he has contributed to 6 goals and 2 assists and many predict the successful loan move will help him to challenge for first-team contention come the next season.
