Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has let Reece James leave the club on loan today.

Manchester United's official Twitter account today confirmed that the 21-year-old defender, who was wanted by three Championship clubs, Fulham, Huddersfield and Sheffield Wednesday, has joined The Terriers until the end of the season.

Although Louis van Gaal is reportedly a big fan of James, he is willing to let him leave the club on loan to get some first team experience.

Manchester United were quick to get the deal done, as the emergency loan window shuts today at 5pm.

Although James featured for United during the club's preseason, he has not made a Premier League appearance for the club yet.

Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo have all been preferred by Van Gaal, while James spent a portion of this season on loan at Rotherham United, where he made seven league appearances.

The young left-back signed a new United contract last month on van Gaal's recommendation, after the Old Trafford boss was left impressed by his performances for The Millers.

The contenders to sign him, Huddersfield, Wednesday and Fulham, were looking to bolster their squads for the run-in, with Wednesday looking to secure a mid-table finish and Fulham and Huddersfield hoping to secure league status for another season.

James will now hook up with Huddersfield and aim to help keep them in the English second tier.

What do you think Manchester United fans - does James have a future at Manchester United or should the club let him leave permanently this summer?
