Borthwick-Jackson to play for United U-23s despite Wolves loan

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson was loaned out to Wolves this season with the hopes of giving the young Manchester United defender some needed game time.

Under Louis van Gaal, it appeared as though Borthwick-Jackson was the next in line to the left-back spot after Luke Shaw.

However, Shaw is well out of favour with Jose Mourinho, meaning United have played Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo at left-back, with all three of them failing to impress.
