Joel Pereira’s loan journey continues.
Manchester United have loaned goalkeeper Pereira to Scottish Premiership side Hearts for the remainder of the 2019/20 campaign.
The 23-year-old, who featured during United’s pre-season tour in wins against Perth Glory and Leeds United, has already spent time with KV Kortrijk, Vitoria Setubal, Belenenses SAD and Rochdale in the past, and will likely be hoping that Scotland is the last stop on his nomad experience as he looks to establish himself a more permanent spot in the United line-up.
Following the news that Pereira would be moving further north, current United no.1 David de Gea took to social media to wish his counterpart luck…
Enjoy the experience and prove how good you are bro! ??? https://t.co/Mxw9LNWLGL

As it stands, United currently have Sergio Romero and Lee Grant as their two back-up options, while youngster Dean Henderson, who recently signed a contract keeping him at Old Trafford for another year, is gathering top flight experience with Premier League newbies Sheffield United. All to play for, then.
