Cameron Borthwick-Jackson: Wanted by Wolves

Manchester United youngster Cameron Borthwick-Jackson is set to be handed a bumper new pay rise after making the first team this season.

The 19-year-old Academy graduate has broken into Louis van Gaal’s plans after injuries to Luke Shaw and Marco Rojo.

Borthwick-Jackson has grabbed his opportunity with both hands after making his United debut in the 2-0 win over West Brom in November.

Football Insider claim the youngster has agreed terms on a new contract that will run until 2020 and see his weekly wage jump from £2,000 a week to £12,0000.

Borthwick-Jackson’s first professional contract is due to expire in the summer and his new four-and-a-half-year deal will replace that.

Shaw is unlikely to play again this season, Rojo is struggling with a shoulder problem, Tyler Blackett is on loan at Celtic, converted full-backs Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia are also sidelined and with Phil Jones missing with an ankle problem Borthwick-Jackson, who had made six starts and four substitute appearances, is likely to see more game time.
