Announcement made as Man United deal is signed and sealed

Manchester United defender Reece James has joined Rotherham on an emergency loan, according to the Daily Star website.

The 21-year-old left-back, who made his United debut earlier this season, joins the Championship side until January 10.

Rotherham boss Steve Evans said: “Young Reece is a player who I have watched develop at Manchester United over the last two or three years.

“He is an outstanding young left-back or indeed can be utilised further forward as and when needed.

“His ability was not only witnessed by Sir Alex Ferguson and David Moyes but even more so by current United manager Louis van Gaal, who gave young Reece an opportunity to play in the first-team back in pre-season and indeed the youngster has been close to being involved at Old Trafford in recent weeks.

“I have continually asked the question in relation to bringing Reece to Rotherham United and I was delighted to hear confirmation over the weekend that the young man can join us from now until January.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
