SUFC Defender set to join Mansfield Town on loan

Sheffield United defender Sean McGinty looks set to join Mansfield Town on loan.

The young defender signed a two-year deal with United in the summer following his release by Manchester United in the summer.

He has made just three appearances for the blades since his arrival and he has not featured since the Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash at Scunthorpe United in early September.

Despite not playing regularly for United, he has been a regular inclusion in the Republic of Ireland under-21 side and he looks set to join the League Two side on loan to gain regular first team football.

Troubled teen McGinty earns unwanted prize of being last player booted out by Ferguson

Wayward teenager Sean McGinty has the notoriety of being the last Manchester United player shown the door at Old Trafford by manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
Irish defender McGinty, who cost United about £1million when signed as a hugely promising 16-year-old from Charlton’s academy, had his contract ‘terminated by mutual consent’ after a showdown with the Scot.
This followed McGinty, 19, being sent back from a loan period with Tranmere last month after a serious breach of club discipline, with the player not turning up for training.

Born: 11 August 1993, Maidstone

Position: Left back

McGinty, whose loan spell at Oxford earlier this season also ended abruptly, was already in deep water at United having been convicted of drink-driving and banned for 18 months. He was caught by police last year, twice over the limit and driving the wrong way down a one-way street at 4.30am after leaving a nightclub.
The summary dismissal of McGinty, who had a year left on his United contract, shows that Fergie, who has pointed far bigger names towards the United exit over the last 27 years, was not prepared to tolerate any lowering of standards even in his last weeks in office.
McGinty, who represented the Republic of Ireland at youth level, was a regular for the Under 18 side during his first season at United.
He was part of the 2011 FA Youth Cup-winning side and made seven starts for the reserve side last season.
