Manchester United defender Brandon Williams has joined Ipswich Town on a season-long loan.

The 22-year-old becomes Town’s fifth signing of the summer transfer window and he will link up with manager Kieran McKenna, who he worked with in the youth and first-team set-ups at Manchester United

Brandon told Ipswich TownTV: “It feels good to be down here and I can’t wait to get started.

“I’m coming here to hopefully get into the team and play a lot of games. There is some very good competition, which is a great challenge, but I’m excited to meet the players and get started.

“I played a lot of games when I broke through at United and have had a couple of tough seasons, too, so it’s good for me to get back out and start playing again.”

Brandon continued: “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.”
