Reece James waiting for loan deal

Manchester United youngster Reece James has revealed that he's waiting for the right offer before exiting the club on a temporary basis, reports the Daily Star.

The full-back, who played a key role for the Red Devils throughout pre-season, has insisted that he's got to be patient and any potential loan move must also be the right one for manager Louis van Gaal. 

James last featured for the Old Trafford outfit in the side's humiliating 4-0 defeat against League One outfit MK Dons earlier this season, but has struggled for opportunities with Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo both seemingly ahead of him in the pecking order. 

However, he's insisted that he'd like to make his Premier League debut for Manchester United, but expects to eventually go out on loan as he seeks first-team football. 

When speaking to the club's official site, the youngster said: "There’s no rush. I’ve got to be patient and wait for the right club – and the right one for the manager here as well as myself."

"Fingers crossed, a Premier League debut is something I’d like to add to that but I don’t know when it could be.

"If that’s not a possibility, there might be a conversation about maybe going out on loan."

James has also revealed that injury cut short his stay with Carlisle last season, but it remains to be seen as to whether the League Two outfit would be prepared to bring him back this time around.

"I was at Carlisle [at the start of the 2013/14 season] but had an injury and ended up being out a lot longer than I thought I would be. It was a tear in my thigh so I ended up being out for eight weeks rather than three.

"They needed to get a replacement in so I just stayed here with the U21s instead."

It's certainly unlikely that James will feature this weekend, but Manchester United will be desperate to return to winning ways after derby day defeat to Manchester City in their last fixture. 

The Red Devils play host to Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace at Old Trafford, and will be determined to start climbing the table before a showdown with rivals Arsenal at the Emirates on November 22.
