The Manchester United youth exodus continues today, with another player leaving the club on loan.
The club have this afternoon confirmed that 19-year-old left-back Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has joined Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers on a season-long loan deal.

Wolves have also confirmed the deal, at the same time announcing that they have signed winger Ola John, brother of former Fulham striker Collins John, on a similar agreement.
Borthwick-Jackson broke into the Manchester United first team under Louis van Gaal last season. Having made his debut in a Premier League match against West Brom last November, the young defender went on to make 14 appearances in total for the club.
He signed a new four-year contract at the end of last season, so his long-term future will probably still be at Old Trafford. His departure, therefore, probably has more to do with the fact that his first team opportunities at Man United would be limited this season, and his development would be better served in leaving temporarily.

Nonethleess, he becomes the latest in a long line of young players leaving the club.
Adnan Januzaj, Guillermo Varela and James Wilson have also gone on loan, while Paddy McNair and Donald Love have moved on permanently. The likes of Will Keane and Tyler Blackett are also expected to leave before the window closes in less than a fortnight.
