The 20-year-old, who spent the previous season on loan, will be hoping to contribute to Erik ten Hag’s team in 2022–203.
Laird was one of the athletes who returned to Carrington on Monday as preseason workouts under new boss Erik ten Hag got underway. The 20-year-old, along with some of his fellow academy grads, was one of the 28 people participating in the Dutchman’s first session in charge.
Ethan Laird received a warm welcome from his Manchester United teammates as he rejoined the team.
The defender, who spent part of last season on loan, will be hoping to contribute to United’s summer preparations. Laird spent the first part of 2021–2022 at Swansea before moving on to sign with Bournemouth in the January transfer window.

The right-back, though, had a difficult time staying healthy during his time with the Cherries, which limited him to only six outings on the south coast. Laird, meanwhile, might be a wild card for Ten Hag this summer as he considers his defensive choices.
The defender announced his arrival back to Carrington by sharing a photo of himself at the practice field on Instagram with the message “I’m back.” And he was welcomed by several of his teammates.
