Southampton enquire about Brandon Williams loan deal

Southampton have enquired about signing Manchester United’s Brandon Williams on loan. 

The Red Devils are set to welcome Alex Telles today, creating competition in the full-back department. The Brazilian is set to challenge Luke Shaw for that starting position at left-back, subsequently pushing Williams down the pecking order. 

Telles’ arrival could see the Englishman shift over to right-back, to act as cover to Aaron Wan-Bissaka. The 20-year-old looks much more comfortable down this channel, given that he is right-footed. 

When operating down the left, Williams has a tendency to come inside and drag the ball onto his preferred foot, often slowing down United’s transitional play. 

Himself and Timothy Fosu-Mensah now look set to battle it out for that no.2 position, but perhaps a loan move would suit the Englishman. 

As per the MEN, Southampton are among a number of clubs to enquire about the defender. It could certainly be one to watch, particularly given the recent first-team promotion of Ethan Laird.
