Ralf Rangnick tells Brandon Williams his future is at Man Utd and defender will be recalled from Norwich loan transfer

RALF RANGNICK has made his first Manchester United ‘signing’ – by telling Brandon Williams he will definitely return to Old Trafford at the end of his loan to Norwich. 

The 21-year-old defender has done well this season at Carrow Road, winning the club’s player of the month award in January.

The left back has been a regular starter since Dean Smith replaced Daniel Farke as manager in November. 

But the England Under-21 international is set to head back north in the summer after Rangnick made clear to the United academy product he was part of the plan going forward. 

A source said: “Brandon couldn’t play when United took on Norwich in December because of the loan deal agreement. 

“He watched the game and was saying hello to some of the United players he is mates with when Rangnick made a beeline for him.

“He said he was aware of him, that he rated him and that he definitely wanted him back at United when the loan deal ends. 

“So the message was ‘keep working hard and enjoying playing and you have a big future ahead of you at United’. 


“Brandon was impressed because the manager had only been in charge for a couple of games and had a lot on his plate, but took time out to speak to him.

“The manager likes his speed and versatility as he can play in both full back positions.” 

Williams made his United first team debut in September 2019 and made 17 Premier League appearances. 

But he played just four times in the league the following season, despite signing a four-year deal in August 2020. 

He was loaned to Norwich at the start of this season.
