Motherwell have announced that Liam Grimshaw has returned to parent club Manchester United, after the Old Trafford side recalled the midfielder.

Grimshaw played sixteen times for Mark McGhee’s side since signing a loan deal in September.

Speaking to the official Motherwell website, manager Mark McGhee, said: “We’ve held numerous very positive talks with both Liam and his representatives about the possibility of him becoming a Motherwell player.

“So much so, our plan was to try and finalise an agreement with Manchester United this week. However, we have been gazumped at the last minute by an English club who offered a package that we simply cannot compete with.

“From Motherwell Football Club’s point of view, it is yet another example of how we are set-up to develop young players and this should give further encouragement to any footballer, club or parent about what we have to offer and the platform we can provide.

“Whilst that is frustrating, we completely understand everyone’s position. I would like to firstly sincerely thank Manchester United for allowing us to have the player for the last four months.

“Liam himself has been fantastic in how he has approached the move and his conduct and performances throughout. We’re naturally disappointed to be losing him, but at the same time, proud of him that he’s earned such a good move and wish him every success.

“From Motherwell Football Club’s point of view, it is yet another example of how we are set-up to develop young players and this should give further encouragement to any footballer, club or parent about what we have to offer and the platform we can provide.

“We prepare for every eventuality so have other irons in the fire which we will now explore.”

Grimshaw is expected to seal a permanent transfer away from Manchester United with Preston North End his destination.
