United academy graduate Liam Grimshaw has completed a move to Championship side Preston North End the club have confirmed.
20 year old Grimshaw who’s originally from Burnley joins Simon Grayson’s side for a special offer, an undisclosed sum on a two and half year deal.
United’s official website notes:
“This is a chance to get my career going,” Grimshaw said.
“I have been at Manchester United a long time, but I am ready to move on and make a career for myself.
“It is great to be back home in Lancashire and I am looking to get settled and start to kick on with my career.”
It was highly unlikely the midfielder who can also play in defence and was compared to the likes of John O’Shea and Phil Neville was likely to trouble United’s first team so the move makes a lot of sense all round. Grimshaw is joining a solid side with a good chance of making their first eleven, we wish him well.
