Manchester United have used their call back option for a loaned out player Liam Grimshaw. The 20 year old midfielder was loaned to Motherwell for the 2015-2016 season in September. The midfielder’s loan deal is supposed to expire on Sunday night and as such United seem to have called back the player a few days early.
While Motherwell seems to be disappointed to let Grimshaw go as the club was preparing to have talks with United to let the player stay in Motherwell on a permanent basis. However, United’s call back for the player has left the club ‘gazumped’ as manager Mark McGhee has termed it:
“We’ve held numerous very positive talks with both Liam and his representatives about the possibility of him becoming a Motherwell player. So much so, our plan was to try and finalise an agreement with Manchester United this week. However, we have been gazumped at the last minute by an English club who offered a package that we simply cannot compete with.”
The Scottish club is proud of the way the player has improved since he joined the club and are happy with the move that the player has gotten. The club is glad to have the player even though it had been just for four months. From the sounds of it Grimshaw has been offered a place away from the Old Trafford.
