Manchester United’s Demetri Mitchell to join Hearts on loan – sources
Manchester United defender Demetri Mitchell is set to join Scottish Premiership side Hearts on loan, sources have told ESPN FC.
Highly-rated left-back Mitchell made his debut for United on the final day of last season in the win over Crystal Palace.
The 20-year-old is tipped for a big future at United, but he is currently well down the pecking order in Jose Mourinho’s first-team plans at Old Trafford.
United are happy to loan out Mitchell so that he can gain valuable first-team experience and Hearts have beaten a host of clubs to land the defender on loan for the rest of the season.
