Reece James joins Huddersfield on loan


Manchester United’s versatile defender Reece James has joined Huddersfield on loan, according to reports from Manchester Evening News.

The 21-year-old versatile defender, who can also play in the midfield, was wanted by several Championship clubs – Fulham, Sheffield Wednesday and Huddersfield – ahead of Thursday’s loan deadline day.

Now it has been confirmed that he will join Huddersfield on loan for the rest of the season.

The youngster signed a contract extension last month with United after impressing manager Louis van Gaal in the club’s last summer pre-season tour. 

He scored against La Galaxy and made his first team debut in the Capital One Cup against Milton Keynes Dons. 

After being benched for the opening three Barclays Premier League games, he was sent on loan to Rotherham United on loan in November to obtain experience.
