Man Utd’s Sean McGinty in Oxford United loan move
Republic of Ireland under-19 defender Sean McGinty has joined Oxford United on loan until January.
The Manchester United 18-year-old can play at left back and centre defence and played 4 times for Morecambe on loan last season before a dislocated shoulder injury saw him return to Old Trafford. McGinty has lined out for Ireland at under-17 and under-19 level, and will officially move to the Kassam Stadium on August 4th.
Us manager Chris Wilder could start McGinty in tonight’s friendly with West Ham United. “Sean is a player I have watched on more than one occasion and he is a good player who has always impressed me,” Wilder told the club’s official website.
“He is very highly rated and will come into the group and give us another strong option. It’s another example of the excellent relationship we have with Manchester United and we look forward to working with him.”
