Manchester United have determined to recall the 21-year-old Devonte Redmond from his current loan spell at Scunthorpe.
The midfielder’s loan deal was due to end on January 6th, but because the League One side isn’t playing this weekend, the Red Devils have brought him back two days early.
While playing for Scunthorpe, Redmond played seven times, and now he will aim to play for Ricky Sbragia’s youth side back at the AON Training Complex.
He’s a good footballer in his right, but perhaps I can see him playing at Championship level all going well.
It would have been an excellent experience for him playing regular, competitive football though, and it gives him a good idea as to what it’ll be like if Redmond does move away from Manchester United on a permanent contract.
Personally, you can tell whether or not a loan move is going to work within the first few weeks, just look at how well both Andreas Pereira and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are playing right now; both of whom could be worthy of an early call-back this month.
