Manchester United's defender Rhys Bennett embarks on his inaugural loan spell, joining Stockport County for the remainder of the season. The promising centre-back aims to gain valuable senior experience with Stockport, who currently lead League Two under Dave Challinor's leadership.
Having captained United's Under-18s to FA Youth Cup glory in 2022, Bennett brings leadership and skill to Stockport's ranks. While he awaits his first-team debut, Bennett has showcased his talent in Premier League 2 and the EFL Trophy.
Although he's yet to make his senior debut, Bennett's presence on the bench during Premier League and FA Cup fixtures underscores his potential. His move marks United's seventh loan transfer of the January window, alongside Mateo Mejia's permanent departure to Sevilla.
Stockport's upcoming fixture against Notts County presents an opportunity for Bennett to make an impact. United wishes him the best for his stint at Stockport and eagerly anticipates his progress.
