Man Utd confirm termination of Sergio Reguilon’s loan from Tottenham

Sergio Reguilon’s season-long loan spell at Manchester United has been cut short and he has returned to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Spain international joined the Red Devils late in the summer 2023 transfer window after left-backs Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia sustained injuries.

Reguilon ended up playing 12 games in all competitions for United in the first half of the 2023/24 season. With Shaw fit again, Malacia closing in on a return to action and Erik ten Hag’s side only competing on two fronts for the remainder of the campaign, United have now confirmed Reguilon’s loan has been terminated.

A statement from United read: “Sergio Reguilon is returning to his parent club Tottenham Hotspur after Manchester United activated a break clause in the loan agreement.

“The Spanish left-back joined on a temporary basis last August and made a positive contribution during the first half of the season.

“Sergio fulfilled the role he was brought in for: to provide cover for Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia while both were out with long-term injuries. 

“While Luke has missed the past two games with a minor injury, the England international is expected back soon. Tyrell, meanwhile, is getting closer to a return from his knee injury.

“The versatile Diogo Dalot can also provide further cover at left-back. 

“With fewer games in the second half of the season and injured players returning, there will be less opportunity for Sergio to play. It was decided it was in the best interests of all parties for Reguilon to return to Spurs.

“The 27-year-old defender leaves United with our appreciation for his contribution and best wishes for the future.”
