Rangers set for Manchester United youngsters on loan
Rangers have been linked with loans deals for Manchester United youngsters Corry Evans and Joshua King.
Rangers are set to receive two Manchester United youngsters on loan in the January transfer window. Striker Joshua King and midfielder Corry Evans have been lined up to join Walter Smith’s side, according to reports.
Norwegian King is described by Manchester United as “powerful centre forward” with what under-18s coach Paul McGuinness calls “raw potential”.
“He's tall, strong and a very powerful player. He’s a strong runner with or without the ball and he can beat defenders.”
The 17-year-old Norwegian born player was hampered by injury last season but has impressed in the reserves this year. He was rewarded with an appearance for United in their League Cup win over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford in September.
Midfielder Evans has been moonlighting in defence for the under-18s and the reserves and was short-listed for the Reserves Player of the Year last season.
He’s the younger brother of Johnny Evans who broke into the first team last season and has carved out a niche for himself with 22 appearances so far for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's reserves.
The brothers came over from Belfast when Johnny was handed a place at United’s footballing academy and Corry signed his own professional papers in August this year.
United’s website describes 19-year-old Corry as “a mainstay in central midfield, but his strength in the tackle, reading of the game and ability on the ball also appear perfectly suited to playing at the back.”
