Manchester United talent Reece Devine is set to complete a season-long loan move from Old Trafford to St Johnstone (Courier).
The left-back has never experienced senior football and was considered for a move to McDiarmid Park last season. But Saints manager Callum Davidson is taking up the opportunity to sign the Manchester United left-back this term.
Aged 19, Devine has been a regular for Manchester United at both U18s and Premier League 2 level. The defender was also previously with Manchester City as a youngster, before committing his future to the red side of the city.
Devine has played two senior matches for the Manchester United U23s side in the EFL trophy, starting defeats to Accrington Stanley and Morecambe. He will experience Europa League football alongside cinch Premiership action in Perth, St Johnstone’s European campaign kicking off this summer.
Davidson has already signed two defenders this summer as interest mounts in his backline, following an unprecedented League Cup and Scottish Cup double during his first season in charge. Right-back James Brown and centre-back Hayden Muller have both arrived from Millwall, signing a two-year deal and season-long loan deal respectively.
