Published Add your comment

Borussia Monchengladbach have confirmed that Manchester United forward Joshua King is set for a season long loan with the club.

The 19-year-old has seen his first-team opportunities limited at Old Trafford and following a three-month spell with Preston, will get more playing time in Germany next season.

King showed a glimpse of his potential when scoring his first professional goal for North End against Stockport County last season, and Max Eberl has confirmed a deal is in place between themselves and United.


"We have an agreement with Manchester United for a loan of one year. United presented very extensive contract work because they care intensely about their players and would like to stay in constant contact with us.

"The contracts must be translated and checked, that's now going back and forth between the lawyers of the two clubs. Our goal is to have him in Bad Worishofen next Monday."

Born in Oslo, King has made two appearance for the Norway U19's, scoring on both occasions.
