Manchester United chief Ed Woodward is in charge of transfers and contracts

EXCLUSIVE By Pete O’Rourke

Manchester United defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has agreed the terms of a deadline-day move to Tranmere Rovers, Football Insider understands.

The League One side have won the race ahead of other Football League and overseas clubs for the left-back, 22, before the transfer window shuts this evening.

A United source has told Football Insider that Borthwick-Jackson has already completed a Tranmere medical and finalised the paperwork on a season-long loan switch.

Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer and the United coaches have given the green light for the defender to leave after he slipped completely out of the first-team reckoning.

The 22-year-old has not featured for United for nearly three years and spent last season at Scunthorpe United after previous loan spells at Leeds United and Wolves.

It is a far cry from when Louis van Gaal was in charge at Old Trafford and handed Borthwick-Jackson his debut in the 2015-16 season when he was still 18.

It was the first of 14 appearances for the former England Under-21 international under the retired Dutch manager.

The England Under-20 international has subsequently not added to his United appearances, although he was a regular starter for Scunthorpe in League One in the last campaign.
