Man United Return For Defender

Man United Return For Defender

Reece James' time with Carlisle hadn't panned out how anyone would have been hoping it would when he came to Brunton Park.

Signed on loan from Manchester United in August the teenager suffered an injury setback in only his second appearance for the club...

James worked hard to get himself fit again, although he suffered a setback or two and during that period other players came in on loan and this pushed him down the pecking order.

On top of that players are closer to returning from their own injuries now, including Chris Chantler who is making quicker than expected progress in his return and could be back in full training next week.

Graham Kavanagh explained his loan return to the official website: 'Reece is a great lad and he has been absolutely first class since the moment he came up here

'He settled quickly, he was getting games and he was just really unfortunate with the timing of his injury. We brought Conor Townsend in from Hull as cover and we are now in a situation where Chris Chantler is well ahead in terms of where we expected him to be with his recovery.

'I spoke to Manchester United about the situation and they have been really understanding with us. Like I say, Reece has worked hard and it has been a pleasure for us to have him here with us. We wish him all the very best as he goes back down to Manchester.'

The loan of the 19-year-old was terminated, and he returned to Old Trafford, when it was mutually agreed that him returning to his parent club was the best thing for all concerned.

Good luck to James (who isn't with United without deserving to) who will have a good future in the game you'd think, just not with us...
