MANCHESTER UNITED are wanting to loan goalkeeper Nathan Bishop out to the EFL this month.
The stopper, 21, signed from Southend last year and then put pen to paper on an agreement extension on Monday, tying him down at Old Trafford till 2023.
There is an option of an additional 12 months, too, for the child who has actually been associated with first-team training however yet to make a senior look.
However with Bishop behind David De Gea, Dean Henderson and Sergio Romero in the chain of command – and battling with Paul Woolston and Ondrej Mastny in the Under-23s – the club are searching for somewhere for him to build experience.
And it is thought United want to send out the former England U20 worldwide to the Championship or League One.
Employer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer stated: “Yes, I believe Nathan’s next step need to be a loan deal.
” He might be prepared for the Champion or League One for sure.
” The young boys require an action up from the U23s, due to the fact that often that level doesn’t prepare you for a guy’s game.”
Bishop made 39 senior appearances – 31 of those in the 3rd tier – for Southend between December 2017 and signing up with United in early 2020.
Inquired about whether a loan move attract him at this stage, Bishop was plainly in favour.
