Man United defender in line for bumper new deal

Manchester United defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson is in line for a new and improved contract with the club, report the Manchester Evening News.

The defender has been afforded a run in the first-team under Louis van Gaal amid the injury crisis dogging the Red Devils all season.

With first choice left-back Luke Shaw a long term layoff, the 19-year old has been thrust into the limelight.

Marcos Rojo and Ashley Young, who have both been deployed a left-back, are also out with injury problems.

For the most part, the academy graduate has dealt with his step up well and particularly impressed against Chelsea last weekend.

As a result, he is reportedly in line for a new deal at the club, taking him to senior pay ranks.

“We are dealing with that of course but you have to wait for an announcement from the club,” said the United manager.

“It’s a good policy and I’m happy with Borthwick-Jackson and Jesse Lingard because of that policy they have had that chance.”

He has been recognised at England under-19 level now he has impressed during his brief career so far.
