James Garner signed a new contract with Manchester United until 2024, and then joined Nottingham Forest for a one-season loan contract.
The 20-year-old player has played 7 times for the Manchester United first team, and he entered the youth academy after joining the club at the age of eight.
After signing his new contract, Garner said: “I have made up. Manchester United has been an important part of my life for more than 10 years.
“My ambition is obviously to be a first-team player here. I know exactly what it takes, and I am ready to show my abilities to everyone and continue to work for all my goals.
“The signing of this new contract shows the club’s trust in me. It gives me extra motivation and it means a lot to me and my family.
“I want to one day become an important player in this club. This is my ultimate goal. I will strive to achieve this goal every day.”
Ghana is now back to the Forest team. He played 20 times during the club loan in the second half of last season and scored 4 goals.
Prior to this, he had been on loan to Watford in the first half of the 2020-21 season and played for Watford 20 league times.
“We are very confident that he will be the next Michael Carrick,” Manchester United coach Solskjaer commented on Ghana after defeating the young midfielder 3-1 at Crystal Palace in February 2019.
Two years later, Solskjaer’s team still has a Carrick-shaped hole in the midfield. After losing 4-2 to Liverpool at Old Trafford in May, Former club captain Roy Keane made a stern assessment of Solskjaer’s trusted Scott McTominay and Fred midfield duo.
Keane told Sky Sports: “As long as these two players are in Manchester United’s midfield, they won’t win any major trophies. I can’t believe how short Manchester United is.”
In an exclusive interview Sky Sports NewsNick Cox, Dean of Manchester United Academy, described the journey of Ghana and made judgments on his performance this season and the future of the 20-year-old player.
