Confirmed: Manchester United man departs on loan for the rest of the season

Manchester United slip to Wolves defeat

It wasn’t meant to be like this.



The departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, some will argue far too late, was supposed to usher in a spell of more coherent, tactical football and perhaps more importantly. improved results.

However, after narrow 1-0 wins over Crystal Palace and Norwich, the Red Devils have slumped to a 1-1 draw to Newcastle (where defeat would have been more reflective of the game) and now, most recently, a 1-0 defeat on home soil to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

A lot of work seemingly needs to be done in the transfer window should Manchester United still harbour hopes of finishing in the top four this season, with their performances and results a long way from what is necessary to do so.

But, before any incomings, there has been an outgoing.

Senior defender leaves on loan

Now, Birmingham City have announced the capture of highly-rated young centre-back Teden Mengi on loan from Old Trafford for the remainder of the season.

The 19-year-old defender has already made his senior Manchester United debut, and was deployed in the Champions League against Young Boys this campaign, but has been consigned to the U23s aside from that this campaign.

Therefore, a move to Championship strugglers Birmingham City, who currently sit 18th at mid-distance, could be just what the 19-year-old needs.

Will it be at Birmingham that Mengi earns his stripes?
