Brandon Williams, who didn’t make a single appearance in the Premier League last season with the Red Devils has signed a deal with Ipswich Town as a loan player. With the presence of Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia, it was very difficult for Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag to feature him in the playing 11. As of now both Manchester United and Ipswich Town confirmed the loan deal for Williams.
The deal comes in with a buy option clause from Manchester United. Williams will return to Old Trafford at the end of the 2023/24 campaign. He’ll become a free agent at that point unless Man Utd trigger the one-year option they hold in his contract.
Brandon Williams moves to Ipswich Town on loan
Brandon Williams after getting no opportunity with the Premier League club Manchester United, is all set to start for Championship side Ipswich Town. His loan contract of one year has been confirmed by both the sides and the defender will be keen to have a good season after getting no matches in the Premier League last season.
Williams started his senior club career with Manchester United back in 2019. He made his first-team debut on 25 September as a substitute in an EFL Cup match against Rochdale. He made his Premier League debut in October of that year against Liverpool as a late substitute.
In 2020 the left-back signed a new four-year deal with United with an option to extend further. He made only four appearances that season before making his move to Norwich City as a loan player for one year. He made 26 appearances for Norwich City in the Premier League.
Williams made a total of 51 appearances in four seasons for Manchester United. The left-back also scored a goal in his first season. The 22-year-old is now all set to play for Championship side Ipswich Town for the 2023/24 season as a loan player.
Williams will be looking to make a point in this opportunity as the youngster had to warm the bench the whole last season for Manchester. “It feels good to be down here and I can’t wait to get started. I’m coming here to hopefully get into the team and play a lot of games. There is some very good competition, which is a great challenge, but I’m excited to meet the players and get started,” said Williams after successfully signing the contract.
