Speaking to Sky Sports News Radio, new United manager David Weir confirmed that Coady will be joining The Blades shortly.

"Conor is a top player, I've seen him a lot and desperate to join us as well," he said.

"Liverpool have been great to deal with and Brendan Rodgers has been fantastic.

"It benefits both sides, which is what a loan is supposed to do."

Coady made one appearance for Liverpool last season in a 3-1 victory over Fulham, and skippered the Three Lions' Under-20 side in their disappointing World Cup campaign in Turkey.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
