Andy Kellett has joined Manchester United on loan from Bolton. The deal includes Saidy Janko moving the other way. The Swiss midfielder, 19, is currently yet to make a senior appearance for United.

Kellett, 21, has only made four senior appearances for Wanderers, and earlier in the season had a stint at League Two side Plymouth Argyle.


He joined Argyle in October, making 15 appearances for the Devon side and scoring a ‘Lionel Messi’ type strike in which was he first ever goal at senior level.

This season he has only lasted 51 minutes in his sole appearance for Bolton against Rotherham United.


The young defender came through the academy and has been at the Trotters since 2002, making his first team debut against Leicester on 22th April 2014 in a game that they lost 1-0.

Kellett was due to join The Pilgrims on loan again until the end of the season until Louis Van Gaal stepped in to take him on loan for the duration of the season, the full-back thought Wanderers manager Neil Lennon was ‘joking’ when he told he was off to Old Trafford and not Home Park.


Lennon said: “It’s an opportunity of a lifetime for him.”

Eyebrows were raised when United signed Sadiq El Fitouri, 20, from Salford City; they were raised once again when it was announced Kellett would be joining the Red Devils on loan. The Bolton man is Van Gaal’s third signing of the January transfer window, with experienced former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes and El Fitouri joining him at Old Trafford.
