Sergio Reguilon played 12 times for Manchester United this season before swapping Old Trafford for the Gtech Community Stadium.

Brentford have signed Tottenham's Spanish defender Sergio Reguilon on loan until the end of the season the club have confirmed. LondonWord first reported that the left-back was eyeing a move to the Bees after the termination of his season-long loan at Manchester United

The defender only played 12 times for Erik ten Hag's side and the return to fitness of both Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia meant his presence was no longer needed at Old Trafford. Spurs have Destiny Udogie as their first-choice left-back and he's assisted by Ben Davies, so it was clear Reguilon would not get minutes under manager Ange Postecoglou.

The loan deal works well for the three involved as Spurs could benefit from him playing well and finding form, while Brentford get a left back following injuries to Rico Henry and Aaron Hickey. The Spanish defender will also enjoy playing time he would otherwise not get in north London.

A Tottenham statement read: "Sergio Reguilon has joined Brentford on loan for the remainder of the 2023/24 season.

"The left-back spent the first half of the current campaign on loan at Manchester United, where he made 12 appearances in all competitions. Signed from Real Madrid in September 2020, Sergio has made 67 appearances in our colours to date, scoring twice."

Brentford manager Thomas Frank also revealed his excitement by describing the left-back as a perfect fit for his club. He said: "Sergio is a perfect fit for us. We've been talking for a while about how we need a good left-back, and we managed to get a very good left-back.

"He fits what we want. He's very offensive, has a very good cross and a very good left foot. He's got the experience we need to complement the rest of the squad and he's a good character.

"We need him, but I also think he needs us to show how good a footballer he is. I'm convinced that this will be a positive partnership."

The 27-year-old could make his debut against Nottingham Forest this weekend.
