Manchester United have confirmed Brandon Williams has joined Ipswich Town on a season long loan.

Brandon Williams explains loan

Brandon Williams is set to be reunited with former Manchester United coach Kieran McKenna.

He cites this as behind his decision to drop down into the Championship, with an Ipswich side which have a real chance of challenging for promotion.

Williams told the club website: “Kieran was my youth-team coach at United and, from there, we have had a great relationship.

“He has always had the standards of a coach at the top level and has had a big influence on me.

“He has always kept in touch with me to make sure I’m okay and I trust everything he says because he is great to learn off. I’m excited to work with him again.”

East Anglia rivalry

In making his move, Williams has put himself front and centre of the East Anglia rivalry between Ipswich Town and Norwich City.

Williams spent the season on loan at Norwich in the Premier League in the 2021/22 season.

The left-back may get some stick from the Canaries fans after joining their rivals. But given his combative nature, the young defender will embrace it.
