Blades sign Manchester United goalkeeper on loan for remainder of the season

Sheffield United manager Carla Ward has added Manchester United goalkeeper Emily Ramsey to her squad on a loan arrangement for the remainder of the season according to reports by Manchester United’s official website.

There will no doubt be delight for the Manchester United youngster who today signs a new contract with her parent club, the length of which is currently undisclosed. She will also go out on loan to Sheffield United for the remainder of the season to gain first team playing experience.

The 19-year-old has struggled for starts under United boss Casey Stoney having made just four since joining The Red Devils in 2018 after previously spent time at rivals Liverpool. The keeper is a United academy graduate who left the club aged 16 and she went on to speak out to encourage the club to reinstate their senior women’s team.

As an England Under-20s squad member, she will be hoping to gain more playing time while at FA Women’s Championship outfit Sheffield United, especially following her elbow injury at the beginning of the season.

Ramsey has described signing on for a further years at the club as ‘an honour’ and that playing for the team is a ‘dream’ but she understands that her loan time will be ‘really beneficial (for her) development.’

With United currently having four goalkeepers in the squad, her manager Stoney, claims the loan will give her the ‘invaluable experience and playing time perfect for her development.’
