The 20-year-old left the Red Devils in the summer to join Standard Liege, despite interest from Spurs but the two clubs couldn’t agree a fee, but has subsequently joined the Lilywhites in January.

A statement on the Belgian club’s website tonight read: “The young defender felt homesick and had difficulty acclimating to life away from home and family.

“So when the London club became interested we understood the situation and were not opposed to the return of the player in England.”
