Leeds are prepared to give the left-back a second chance, however, as Thomas Christiansen looks to build a squad capable of promotion.


NOT PICKED YOUR FANTASY FOOTBALL TEAM YET? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?


Christiansen said: “I’ve seen him a few times. He’s a very good player and homegrown which is very important.”

Borthwick-Jackson will hope he can manage more than the seven appearances he made at Molineux.

Former Wolves chief Paul Lambert spoke about his decision to snub the youngster – claiming he needed hardened pros.

He said: “Cameron’s obviously on loan here and hasn’t really featured under me, just because I felt we needed a bit more experience.

“He’s a young lad, a tidy and nice footballer and he’s got to fight his way to get into the side. But he never lets himself down in training. He trains well.”

Borthwick-Jackson played 14 times for Louis van Gaal but his career has since stalled.

The England Under-2os star, has been at Old Trafford since 2003 when he signed up aged just 6.

But the 20-year-old’s future at the club will be in doubt if he fails to make an impression on his second loan deal.
