D’Mani Mellor has become the latest player to leave Manchester United on loan.
The young striker joined the town of Salford on a one-season contract.
Mellor, 20, rose through the ranks at United but suffered an ACL injury in March 2020.
He has now returned from injury and was recently spotted training with the first team.
Glad to have it
Salford boss Gary Bowyer told the club website how thrilled he is with his new addition.
“First of all, a big thank you to everyone at Manchester United, this loan once again strengthens the relationship between the two clubs with Di’Shon Bernard having a successful loan here last season.
“We’re delighted that D’Mani has agreed to join us on loan and he’s giving us another offensive option.
“He’s an exciting player. with an incredible pace of work who was very excited to come and join us.
Mellor also messaged fans at his new club after his arrival was confirmed, and it’s clear he shares Bowyer’s enthusiasm.
Class of ’92 fruitful relationship
Of course, six members of the “Class of 92” own at Salford, and this isn’t the first time United have sent a loaner there.
Last season Di’Shon Bernard joined the Ligue 2 club. He impressed and thanks to that he is now in the league with Hull.
If Mellor can have that progression he will be delighted, especially coming from where he was with his serious injury last year.
He went straight into the Salford squad for today’s 3-0 win over Newport and came on in the second half.
