Transfer Rumours

Swansea City set to sign Manchester United starlet Ethan Laird on loan

According to Football Insider, Swansea City have struck an agreement with Manchester United to sign Ethan Laird on a season-long loan deal.

The 20-year-old enjoyed an impressive loan spell at League One club Milton Keynes Dons after leaving Old Trafford in January 2021.

He made 24 league appearances for the Dons, earning four assists.

Current Swansea boss Russell Martin was at the helm of affairs at the MK Stadium last season when Laird played for them.

The youngster is now set to become Martin’s second signing as the Swans’ manager.

The Championship outfit have already announced the signing of Jamie Paterson from Bristol City.

They narrowly missed out on promotion to the top-flight last season after suffering defeat against Brentford in the play-off final.

The Swans will be hoping to pull off this feat this season with Martin as their new manager.

Laird is a highly-rated player at Old Trafford, who has already earned two appearances for the first team.

He played in League One for the second half of the last campaign but now has the chance to display his skills in the Championship.

Doing well at Liberty Stadium could open up opportunities for him at the Theatre of Dreams.
