Man Utd make loan decision for Charlie McNeill

Manchester United are considering a loan exit for Charlie McNeill.

The Manchester Evening News says United are open to sending McNeill out on loan in the January transfer window. Erik ten Hag's side are prioritising the addition of a new forward this month, but will allow the teenage striker to leave if an appropriate offer comes in for him.

The United forward has already attracted interest from the Football League and that he is willing to gain valuable experience elsewhere during the second half of the season.

McNeill spent last season with League One side Sheffield Wednesday on a work experience loan, which allowed him to train with the first team but not play any games.

The 19-year-old made his senior debut earlier this season when he came on in the closing minutes of United's home defeat to Real Sociedad in the Europa League.

The academy forward was also named on the bench for the trip to face FC Sheriff in Europe, but has not featured in another senior matchday squad since then.
