Cameron Borthwick-Jackson signs new Manchester United contract

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has committed his future to Manchester United by signing a new contract until at least June 2020 with an option to extend for a further year.

Borthwick-Jackson rose through the academy structure at Man United before making his first team debut against West Bromwich Albion last year.

His inclusion was initially due to an injury crisis at the club, but the 19-year-old impressed under Louis van Gaal and he stayed in the starting XI on merit, going on to make 14 appearances in total over the course of the campaign.

Borthwick-Jackson was eventually voted by fans as the U21 Player of the Year at United’s Player of the Year awards.

Luke Shaw can expect to be reinstated at left-back once he returns to full fitness next season but Borthwick-Jackson has proven to be a more than capable back-up and he will be pushing his teammate all the way for a place in the starting XI next term.

The news of Borthwick-Jackson’s new deal comes after Marcus Rashford also tied himself down to the club. It is excellent to see United rewarding their young players.
