Baggies midfielder to join on loan

United will move to strengthen their squad with the signing of highly rated West Brom midfielder Liam O’Neil, according to Sky Sports.

The signing follows news that Isaiah Osbourne could be out for a while with a hamstring injury.

O’Neil has made three Premier League appearances for the Baggies, against Swansea, Stoke and Norwich and enjoyed a loan spell at Finish side VPS.

He was rewarded for his progress with a new deal in May 2014, officially putting pen to paper on a one-year contract, plus a further year’s option in the club’s favour, on July 1 2014. ???? ??????? ?? ???
