SOUTHAMPTON and Newcastle both want Manchester United’s Brandon Williams on loan.
The full-back, 20, struggled for match action last term after enjoying a fine breakthrough campaign in 2019/20.
The arrival of Alex Telles last year limited Williams to 14 appearances in all competitions – with just four of those coming in the Premier League.
Luke Shaw's strong form has kept Williams out of the side, with the England international barely missing a match.
A host of clubs were keen on taking the defender on loan back in January but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decided to keep the ace at Old Trafford.
But the United manager is now confident he has enough cover at left-back so is willing to let Williams leave.
According to talkSPORT’s Alex Crook, a move to Southampton is a ‘possibility’, although the Saints have a number of other names on their shortlist.
And he claims that Newcastle are also ‘keen’ on the starlet.
A move to the Saints or Newcastle would provide an ideal opportunity for Williams to get regular top-flight action.
He also has a number of other options with West Ham interested too.

Premier League newcomers Norwich are also believed to be exploring the option of taking him on loan for the upcoming season.
Williams is a product of the United academy and has been at the club since the age of seven.
He has already been recognised by England at international level, winning caps for both the U20 and U21 sides.
