EPL: Man United announce summer transfer deal

Timothy Aiyeku



Joel Pereira

English Premier League club Man United have announced a summer transfer deal but certainly not what the fans are eager for as it involves a youth player who is going out on a loan deal.

In order to ensure his development, the Red Devils confirmed that Joel Pereira will leave his role as a backup goalkeeper at the old Trafford for a season loan with Huddersfield Town.

Joel Pereira has been a Red Devils player since 2015 but he has only managed to have three first-team appearances which make him not needed at the club until he can challenge for a space in the team.

The loan move of Joel Pereira is also being motivated by the return of English goalkeeper Dean Henderson from his season-long loan spell with Sheffield United where he impressed.

Dean Henderson has now returned and will be with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the 2020/2021 season as the second-choice goalkeeper to David De Gea.

He has already agreed on a new deal with the club which annuls other reports that he will seek to leave the club if he cannot be guaranteed a first-team role ahead of the Spanish goalkeeper at the Old Trafford.
