Manchester United youngsters eye loan moves away

After impressing for Warren Joyce's successful reserve team side last season, the two young wingers are open to the idea of a short-term switch to further progress

Manchester United pair Larnell Cole and Jesse Lingard are both contemplating going out on loan for the upcoming campaign as they seek to continue their footballing education.

Both players were shortlisted for the club's Reserves' Player of the Year prize last season as they continued their rise through the club's ranks after proving instrumental in their side's FA Youth Cup win back in 2011.

And Lingard now believes that it is may be time for him to explore the option of a temporary move to another club.

"We’ll see when I come back how I’ve developed and, if I’m ready I’ll go out on loan," Lingard told the club's official website.

"I met Sir Alex and he said we’ll see what happens when I come back for pre-season.

"I’ve developed well now from being in the Reserves. Initially, I didn’t want to go on loan as I will miss the lads here despite it being good experience.

"But there are things like I can’t cook whatsoever. I’ve got to be independent and learn how to grow up so now it’d be a good experience for me to go out on loan."

The 19-year-old Cole, who missed out on this summer's England U-19 squad for the European Championship due to injury, echoed his team-mate as he also remains keen to take his development to the next level.

"It’s good to learn and get a taste of it [at United]," he stated.

"But I’d like to play and, hopefully next season, I’ll come back and do that. I would also like to get experience out on loan.

"I would look forward to going out [elsewhere] – it’s what I’d like to do to get more experience."
