Manchester United youngster Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has been recalled from his loan spell at Wolves, as the Red Devils have decided to exercise their recall clause for the left-back.

A disappointing loan stint

The 20-year-old, who was born in Manchester, could only manage to make six appearances for the Molineux Stadium based outfit in what can be considered a rather unfruitful stint at the Championship side. The last time the youngster donned the orange jersey was way back in early November, in a game that saw #Wolves lose 3-2 to Derby.

Despite having exercised the recall clause, Borthwick-Jackson's loan deal at Paul Lambert's side hasn't been cut-short and could be in line to feature during their next Championship outing against Gianfranco Zola's Birmingham City, provided he gets called up to the side on Friday night.

The left-back though, is very likely to feature in Nicky Butt's #Manchester United reserves squad, that will lock horns with Porto in the quarter-finals of the Premier League International Cup.

A fading commodity?

Borthwick-Jackson was handed a way into the United first-team by former Dutch boss Louis van Gaal, who had played the youngster in as many as 10 league games, apart from a single Champions League game.

Luke Shaw's injury early on last season had allowed Borthwick-Jackson a chance in a side that was reeling from injury issues around the December-January period last season. It was during this period that the likes of Guillermo Varela, Joe Riley, Donald Love and Nick Powell were handed their respective opportunities to make a mark in the United first-team.

After featuring against Bournemouth in the last game of the season, Borthwick-Jackson has failed to make too much of an impact and has thus struggled to carve out a first-team spot at the Molineux.

Wolves are currently as low as 19th in the Championship table, with chances of returning to the Premier League looking rather dim. The recent 2-0 defeat to Chelsea saw them get ousted from the FA Cup, from which they had managed to knock out United's fierce rivals Liverpool.
