Ethan Laird is targeting a long-term future at Manchester United after he shone while on loan at MK Dons earlier in the year.

Laird, 19, impressed after joining the League One club in January, racking up 25 appearances in all competitions as he gained valuable playing experience in senior football.

His progress is of particular interest given Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is understood to be dissatisfied with Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s attacking output and is keen to add a new right-back to his squad this summer.

United have revived their interest in Atletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier, while Laird has reiterated his long-term goal to make the grade at Old Trafford.

“Yeah, of course. I mean, that’s the club I’m at and that’s where I want to be," he told Inside United. “Who knows, I can’t really give you a set answer on my future just yet, but I know that my long-term aim is to establish myself with United. Let’s just see what happens in the summer.”

Laird has made two appearances for the United first team, both in the Europa League group stage, and now he's hungry for even more senior experience after a few months playing in the Football League.

He added: “Honestly, every game means a little bit more. I can't lie to you because it's points on the board and it's people's lives, you know.

"But more it's been the physicality of it for me, just dealing with players that are almost twice as big as you, jumping up for headers, this and that, knowing you're going to get hit, but you have to go for it anyway.

You have to fly back and forward but everything else has been kind of similar. I can't lie to you. But yeah, that's pretty much the main difference, the physicality part of it and a few tactical changes.”
