The 21-year-old defender has joined Scottish Premiership champions Celtic on a season-long loan deal from Premier League giants United, as announced on the Bhoys' official website.

Blackett is a talented and versatile young defender who can play in central defence or at left-back.

The youngster came through the youth system at United and had loan spells at Blackpool and Birmingham City.
