Former Manchester United trio Callum Gribbin, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and George Tanner have all secured moves in the summer transfer window.

The transfer means that the former Red Devils youngsters will be participating in the League Two next season.

Callum Gribbin has been confirmed to have joined the newly-promoted Barrow AFC while George Tanner signed for Carlisle United ahead of next season’s challenge.

Meanwhile, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson will now be wearing the colours of Oldham on a permanent basis following a successful loan spell with the club last season.

Callum Gribbin was very highly rated during his days at Old Trafford. He was expected to break into the first team and be part of the current team but that did not happen before he left the club.

It would be recalled that Callum Gribbin trained with the first-team squad under both Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho and was tipped to have a great prospect.

Man United have got a very rich youth side but unfortunately, most of the players end up not living their potential as they have an early move away from the club.

This limits their progress in most cases like it is with the trio- Callum Gribbin, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, and George Tanner who are all now in the lower divisions.
