Yeovil Town have signed Manchester United forward Tom Lawrence on a three month youth loan.

Tom hails from Wrexham and is a talented player who likes to play just off the main striker.

He has been at United since he was eight, progressing through the age-groups in the Reds’ Academy and being part of the 2011 FA Youth Cup-winning squad.

In December Tom joined Carlisle United on loan where he scored three goals in six appearances before returning to Old Trafford.

Commenting on the new arrival manager Gary Johnson said: “I am very pleased to be able to bring Tom into our squad from Manchester United. He’s a player that can play either side wide or as a regular number 10.


“Tom has got tremendous potential and has shown that at League One level with Carlisle and Manchester United have given us the opportunity to bring him on further in the Championship.”
