MANCHESTER UNITED have secured the future of talented youngster Di’Shon Bernard before sending him out to Hull City on loan.
The 20-year-old has committed himself to the Red Devils ‘long-term’ after impressing last season.
He spent the campaign at nearby League Two side Salford City.
Bernard made 29 appearances for the Ammies and helped them to an eighth place finish.
Now after penning a new contract at Old Trafford, he is heading to East Yorkshire for his second temporary move away.
The defender is now desperate to help Grant McCann’s Tigers to secure a second-straight promotion as he prepares for his first taste of the Championship.
Bernard said: “I’m very excited to join Hull City and hopefully it can be a very successful season for us.
“City are a very, very big club and used to being in the Premier League and hopefully they can get back to that spot, and hopefully I can play my part in getting them there.”
Bernard came through the youth ranks at United’s rivals Chelsea.
He moved to the Red Devils at the age of 16 and made his senior debut in the Europa League clash with Astana in 2019.
The starlet has also been involved with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team this pre-season.
