Manchester United U23 coach Neil Wood says four youngsters will depart on-loan next season.

James Garner, Dylan Levitt, Teden Mengi and Ethan Laird are all set to depart.

These players have all warmed the bench in the Europa League this season and have even picked up interest from Championship and League One clubs.

And Wood has suggested they would be better served plying their trade in the loan market.

Speaking to Goal, the United U23 manager said: “I think if they’re not going to be around the first team, then the natural next step is to go out on loan, so they can show how good they are.”
