Impressive at MK Dons

Laird was given the green light to leave Manchester United on loan in the January transfer window to get some experience under his belt.

He went on to play 25 times for MK Dons in all competitions and put in some impressive performances for the Buckinghamshire side on the right flank.

The defender is highly thought of at Manchester United and has risen up through their academy.

Laird has been a regular for them at various youth levels over the past few years and has made two first-team appearances for Ole Gunnar’s Solskjaer’s side so far in his career.

He has also represented England at Under-17, 18 and 19 level.

Another loan

A loan move to Swansea now makes sense for him. He already knows their manager and it poses an opportunity for him to test himself in the Championship after proving his worth in League One.

Laird was at the Swans’ game yesterday and a move there should be going through soon.
