Forgotten Manchester United academy product Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has left England to move abroad.
The former Manchester United defender was most recently at Burton Albion but was released by the club at the end of the 22/23 season – meaning he needed to find a new club.
The defender joined United when he was just six years old and worked all the way through the academy ranks. He was handed his senior debut by Louis van Gaal in November 2015.
He impressed and went on to make 14 appearances in all competitions that season. Fast forward eight years – he’s now made a move to the Ekstraklasa.
Cameron Borthwick-Jackson moves to Śląsk Wrocław
Cameron Borthwick-Jackson‘s new home is Śląsk Wrocław in the Polish First Division – the Ekstraklasa.
The side issued a video to welcome the English full-back. It depicts Borthwich-Jackson in the middle of their pitch waving a flag with the club colours on.

It’s an interesting move for the now 26-year-old, who has spent his entire career in England, having previously featured for Wolves, Leeds, Scunthorpe, Tranmere, Oldham and of course – Burton Albion.
Nevertheless, to revitalise his career, a drastic switch may be necessary. We wish you all the best, Cameron!
Cameron Borthwick-Jackson was once ‘rated higher than Rashford’
Just six years ago he topped SciSports‘ list of the top 30 youngsters in European football – which was based entirely on potential.
He outranks a list of unbelievable players including current Manchester United stars Marcus Rashford and Donny van de Beek, whilst also featuring some of Europe’s finest in Theo Hernandez, Ousmane Dembele, Martin Odegaard and Youri Tielemans!
It is quite funny to look back at that, but he really did shine in that first campaign at United. Prepare yourselves Poland – you’re about to be getting some sweet left-footed crosses in the Ekstraklasa.
