It is no big surprise that Leeds United have signed Cameron Borthwick-Jackson from Manchester United as it has been doing the rounds on the transfer gossip pages for some time.
The Championship club made it official on Monday, confirming that the young left-back has joined on a season-long loan.

The 20-year-old graduated from United’s academy in 2015 and has so far made 14 appearances for the Premier League giants.
Last season, the defender went on loan to Wolverhampton Wanderers, where he had seven outings in total.
Now, the England Under-20 is on the move again, and he will continue his progress by battling it out in the second tier.
Leeds got their campaign underway on Sunday when they defeated Bolton Wanderers 3-2 on away turf, and now manager Thomas Christiansen will have Borthwick-Jackson available for selection when the Whites play their first home game this weekend against Preston.
After the youngster was named as Leeds’ 11th signing of the summer, supporters took to Twitter to give their reaction to the new arrival.
Wants to play for a big club and in front of decent fans can hardly blame him
