Manchester United have focused on loaning out players in the current transfer window despite the fact they desperately need quality additions to strengthen the team.
Man Utd have now completed another loan deal to send English center back, Rhys Bennet, to Stockport County until the end of the campaign.
The EFL League Two side confirmed the done deal on their official website.
In the summer, Bennet signed a new long term deal with the Red Devils and takes home a salary of around £88,400 a year.
However, the 20-year-old defender is yet to make a single senior appearance under the management of Erik ten Hag.
This season, he was an unused substitute in the Premier League fixture against West Ham United last month, moreover, he was again on the bench in the 2-0 FA Cup victory vs Wigan Athletic.
Therefore, a loan deal for the youngster should be beneficial at this time. Stockport manager praised Bennet and stated:
“Rhys is someone we know and who knows us. He spent a couple of months with us last season as part of an arrangement we had with Man United to get some younger players into our environment to train.”
“It’s fair to say he made a lasting impression on all of the staff not just in terms of his ability, but as a character and personality in being mature and having an understanding of the game”.
Stockport are currently leading the League Two table and hope Bennet would further strengthen the squad to and help them win the title.
