Brandon Williams: Manchester United defender wanted by Southampton


Manchester United defender Brandon Williams is a January loan target for Southampton.

Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl failed in a bid to land the England Under-21 international on loan in the summer.

Williams remains one of a number of players being considered at St Mary’s as Southampton look to strengthen their defensive options, especially as he can fill both full-back roles.

The arrival of Alex Telles in October means Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may be more likely to sanction a loan deal next month.

Williams has featured only five times for United this season, with his last appearance coming as a second-half substitute in the 3-2 Champions League defeat away to RB Leipzig earlier this month.

The 20-year-old has played only once in the Premier League so far in 2020/21, once again appearing as a second-half substitute in the 3-2 victory at Southampton in November.

Williams enjoyed a superb breakthrough campaign for United last season, making 36 appearances in all competitions as the club finished third in the Premier League.
