Now, it has been claimed the Terriers are set to face competition from Championship new boys Coventry City. Mark Robins is looking to add some more new faces to his squad before the start of the season and Garner is said to have been identified as a potential target.

After an impressive breakout campaign last season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to send Garner out on loan to allow him to pick up more experience of senior football in the Championship.

Garner featured six times across all competitions last season, playing in four of the Red Devils’ Europa League matches. He has made the step up to the first-team after impressing with the Under-23s, for whom he netted an impressive eight goals in 10 matches earlier this campaign.

Garner plays as a defensive midfielder and has drawn comparisons to Michael Carrick because of his composure on the ball and ability to dictate the play. He has captained the club’s Under-23s and looks to have a big future in the game.
