Manchester United have sent out youngster Oliver Norwood on loan to Coventry City until the end of the season, reports BBC
Norwood, 20, has been with the club since the age of seven, and worked his way through the youth teams before signing a professional contract in 2009. The Northern Ireland international has made 4 appearances for the national side, and has had loan spells at Carlisle United and Scunthorpe United previously.
Despite this, the midfielder is still yet to make a competitive appearance for the Manchester United first team, and the loan spell will allow him to obtain regular playing time. As yet, there is no clarification on whether any fee is involved as part of the loan.
Speaking on the signing, Coventry chief executive Tim Fisher said: “We are delighted to have Oliver on board. It’s great that we’ve been able to secure his services ahead of many other clubs.”
