Done Deal : Manchester United Announce Official Deal

Ethan Laird, a Manchester United defender, has joined Swansea City on a season-long loan. During a loan spell at MK Dons last campaign, the 20-year-old, who can play on the right or left flank, played under Russell Martin. Laird has appeared in two senior games for the Red Devils.

"He can play wing-back, he can play centre-half, and he'll bring a tremendous character to the team," Swansea manager Martin said of Ethan Laird.

"He is a wonderful person. At our former club, he made a significant contribution to our team, and he will do the same here. As a guy, you can't help but admire him. In the last third, he'll provide a lot of energy, athleticism, and explosiveness." He went on.

Swansea are now without Wales right-back Connor Roberts, who damaged his groin playing at Euro 2020 in June, and Kyle Naughton and Ryan Bennett, who both missed Swansea's weekend draw with Sheffield United due to minor ailments, according to Martin.

Laird, who joins Jamie Paterson and Flynn Downes as Martin's third Swansea addition, will be able to make his first appearance in the Welsh club's Championship match against Stoke City on Tuesday. Laird made two appearances for United in the 2019-20 Europa League season.
