Manchester United is considering shipping out Angel Gomes, Tahith Chong, and James Garner on loan in the January transfer window.
The trio were supposed to leave the club on loan in the summer transfer window but were retained by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the first team. The three players have all been involved in first-team action this season but United have not had results their way as they sit just two points above relegation places.
United's loan boss whose official title is academy player performance manager, spoke about the loan process at Old Trafford, "There will be lots of hard work, as part of what Nicky Butt puts together as the plan for everybody. We’ll plan it out and we’ve identified four or five who might be going out in January.
"Obviously, our first-team manager has a say. Three lads could have possibly gone on loan Angel Gomes, Tahith Chong, and James Garner but he wanted to keep them here and have a look at them on tour. So a decision will be made, no doubt, for January as well. Hopefully, all three will be in the first team and not going anywhere.
"They’ve been presented with an opportunity and they’ve taken the opportunity so now a couple of them are regulars on the team sheet each week. We’ve had opportunities that have cropped up from nowhere. That’s football.
"Hopefully, some of the lads out on loan now will also catch the eye as some have gone out with a perception of their ability and where they’ll end up but hopefully they’ll come back and people will say maybe we’ve got a little diamond."
