Loan Watch 2016-17: Cameron Borthwick-Jackson Joins Wolverhampton Wanderers


Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has joined Wolverhampton Wanderers on a season-long loan.

The left-back will look to impose himself in the Championship, with regular first team football the aim.

Not turning 20 until February, the youngster has the chance to prove his worth on a regular basis.

Wolves have had a bright start to their season, taking eight points from their opening four games and are in the Capital One Cup second round at the time of writing.

Backed by wealthy owners, the Midlands outfit have a good chance to battle for Premier League promotion, with Borthwick-Jackson hoping to play his part in their push.

It was November last year that the defender replaced Marcos Rojo against West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford for his debut.

He has made a total of 14 first team appearances, never looking out of place, including an impressive performance away at Anfield of all venues as United defeated arch rivals Liverpool 1-0.

Warren Joyce also got the best out of him, as the under-21s retained their title, with the fast-tracked progress catching the eye of coaches alike.

Unfortunately, injury towards the end of last season saw him miss out on the FA Cup final and pre-season under Jose Mourinho.

With initial question marks over the futures of Daley Blind and Rojo, it was thought the academy graduate would play back-up to the returning Luke Shaw.

The Europa League and potential cup runs would also mean a packed schedule and squad rotation, but his injury has seemingly halted his progression for now.

This makes a loan spell away a sensible solution, with his new long-term contract signed shortly after Mourinho’s appointment an indication of where his eventual future lies.

We wish Cammy all the best in his temporary spell away from the club.
