Man Utd could let Brandon Williams out on loan in January for first-team action after Alex Telles arrival

MANCHESTER UNITED could allow young full-back Brandon Williams to go out on loan next month.

The defender, 20, has seen his opportunities limited by the arrival of Alex Telles before the deadline in October.

Williams signed a new deal at Old Trafford in the summer but has not been used as much as he hoped by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Southampton are among the clubs who have shown interest but the United boss says he will make a decision in the New Year.

Solskjaer said: “That's something we'll look at in January but we highly rate Brandon so whoever's interested, they're not wrong.

“Brandon has done really well since he came into the team.

"He had a slow start to the season for different reasons.

“I think he's now coming back to more like himself.

“I can see more Brandon being Brandon again.

"I've enjoyed him more in training, he's played a couple of 23s games and he has been more involved.”

Williams enjoyed a breakthrough campaign last time out, appearing 36 times in all competitions for Solskjaer's men.

Opportunities have become few and far between this season, however.

The full-back started two of the Red Devils' EFL Cup games earlier in the campaign – but has featured for just six minutes in the Premier League.
