Manchester United have previously held talks with Watford over 21 year old right back, Ethan Laird. The player spent both halves of last season on loan to Swansea and Bournemouth.
Laird made 21 appearances for Swansea last season and provided four assists for the club last season. It wasn’t the case at Bournemouth however as he had just six caps for the club.
Ethan Laird is back at United who want to loan him to get regular minutes. Watford are interested, but cannot guarantee regular game time for the player. A full agreement is yet to be reached with QPR, but discussions are at an advanced stage.
Manchester United view Laird as an option at right-back for the future. A loan to the championship side is viewed as an important decision to earn him experience in English football.
