Manchester United youngster Charlie Savage is a target for Cardiff City, Rotherham United and Portsmouth, a report from The Sun has said.
20-year-old midfielder Savage spent the second half of last season on loan at Forest Green Rovers, getting his first taste of regular first-team football. He played 15 times for the club, managing one goal along the way.
It has been reported that the EFL could be Savage’s destination next season too. Only this morning (Wednesday) it was said that Swansea City, Sheffield Wednesday and Wigan Athletic had all registered interest in permanent or temporary deals for the midfielder.
Now,The Sun has claimed three other interested parties are Cardiff City, Rotherham United and Portsmouth.
He’s unlikely to travel with Erik ten Hag’s squad to the U.S. amid this growing interest but time will tell just where Savage ends up with clubs from the Championship and League One both said to be keen on securing his services.
Heading for the EFL?
A first-team role at Manchester United looks unlikely and having already proven himself in youth football, the Championship or League One could be Savage’s best next step as he bids to continue his development away from Old Trafford.
The Wales U21 international can play either as a central midfielder or slightly deeper as a no.6. He would would be a solid addition to any of the sides keen but the priority has to be giving the player ample game time for him to develop and progress.
Those who can offer the strongest guarantee of regular minutes should emerge as favourites but time will tell just how the situation pans out with plenty of sides waiting in the wings for a temporary or permanent swoop.
