Joshua Harrop has signed a new contract with Manchester United and committed his future to the club.
Last year saw Harrop progress very well through the ranks into the U21s where he displaced Joe Rothwell from the team at one stage and he also made his debut for England’s U19s.
He has been rewarded for that good progression with a new deal and it’ll be great to see how he gets on in the next 12 months under Warren Joyce with the U21s.
Harrop may well be sent out on loan this season and given how poorly run the U21s Premier League is in terms of offering regular football for that age group, a loan would be the right choice.
Like fellow U21s player Joel Castro Pereira who also signed a new deal, Harrop’s photo was taken prior to the Adidas deal which began on August 1 which goes some to way to explaining why Nike’s branding is still there.
In recent months there has been a swathe of young players committing their immediate futures to United and a time where the academy has been criticised for falling behind others, it’s good to see so many sign new deals and place their trust in United.
