A host of clubs are lining up moves to sign Manchester United starlet Reece James on loan, Sky Sports understands.

United are believed to be willing to loan out highly-rated defender James so that he can get some valuable first-team action under his belt.

James impressed for United during their pre-season tour of the United States, scoring twice in the 7-0 win over LA Galaxy, and the left-back is highly-regarded within the corridors of power at Old Trafford.

The 20-year-old, who joined United in the summer of 2012, made his first-team debut earlier this season in the Capital One Cup, but United feel he would be best served going out on loan to continue his development.

The news has alerted a number of Championship clubs who are all weighing up a moves for the former Blackburn and Preston youngster.

James' suitors are expected to watch the full-back in action next week when he turns out for United's under 21s against Leicester as United consider where they feel James would be best suited to move to.
