MANCHESTER UNITED are set to recall Ethan Laird from his loan at Swansea, according to reports.
The defender, 20, joined the Swans on loan in the summer and has made 21 appearances this season.
But he will be recalled by the Red Devils before joining Championship leaders Bournemouth for the rest of the season, report The Telegraph.
Laird agreed a season-long loan at Swansea, reuniting with manager Russell Martin who also managed him at MK Dons last season.
But Laird has impressed and United may prefer him to get experience playing in a better side under Scott Parker.
The youngster is reportedly viewed as a future first-team player by the United hierarchy.
And he will be assessed as an option for Ralf Rangnick's side once he returns to Old Trafford.
Rangnick has Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot competing for the right-back slot with Kieran Trippier also linked to the club.
