Brandon Williams hopes for regular game time after Ipswich Town loan from Manchester United
Manchester United loanee Brandon Williams is hoping for regular game time at Ipswich Town after joining on a season-long loan.
The English national completed a temporary switch to the Championship outfit in the ongoing transfer window. In the previous campaign, the full-back hardly got any minutes at the Old Trafford side.
Speaking to the media via Manchester Evening News after completing his move to the Portman Road Stadium side, the 22-year-old expressed his excitement at being part of the Suffolk-based club’s team.
“It feels good to be down here and I can’t wait to get started. I’m coming here to hopefully get into the team and play a lot of games.”
Ipswich are managed by Kieran McKenna, who was a part of United previously. The Northern Irish national served as an assistant manager at the Old Trafford side between 2018 and 2021. Hopefully, the Championship outfit’s gaffer will know all about Williams and will give the defender consistent opportunities in the team.
Having made his way through the youth ranks at the Red Devils, the English national broke into the first team setup in the 2019/20 season. However, subsequently, chances in the team dried up for the left-back.
Then, in the 2021/22 term, Williams was on loan at Norwich City when they were in the Premier League. At the Canaries, the defender started often and was handed much-needed minutes on the pitch.
Unfortunately, in the previous campaign, injuries hampered the English national’s development. The full-back was handed just five minutes by Ten Hag, which came in the 2-0 Carabao Cup win over Burnley in December.
At United, the gaffer has an abundance of talent in the full-back areas. Diogo Dalot, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia are all at the Dutch manager’s disposal.
