Demetri Mitchell is at a crossroads in his young career.
At 22 years of age, the promising left-back has failed to add to his one Premier League appearance for Manchester United and will enter the final year of his contract in a few months’ time.
But Mitchell has provided a glimpse into the future with a promising spell north of the border at Hearts. The former England U20 ace spent last season at Tynecastle and returned in the summer, establishing himself as a key player under Craig Levein.
That is according to The Mirror (16 January, page 57), who believe that the youngster is facing an uncertain future at Old Trafford.
Mitchell, who was part of United’s pre-season tour of the USA, is a versatile player who can play anywhere down the left and it seems that this adaptability has earned him the admiration of Sean Dyche and Eddie Howe.
Though with Manchester United’s managerial situation up in the air, it remains to be seen what their plans are for Mitchell.
