With Cameron Borthwick-Jackson's loan move to Wolverhampton Wanderers being confirmed on Monday, defender Tyler Blackett has followed him through the exit door.

The 22-year-old made his first team debut under Louis van Gaal in August 2014, and had since made 12 appearances for the club.

He was loaned out to Celtic for the 2015/16 campaign, but only featured eight times for the Scottish giants.

Blackett has now joined Championship side Reading, who appointed former United defender Jaap Stam as their new manager ahead of the current campaign.

"As we know, Tyler is a talented defender who has played for United's first team," Stam said on Reading's official website.

"He can play as a left back or a left-sided centre back; he has got great potential in the sense that he is quick and athletic, defensively he is strong and he is good at set-pieces. 

"As a defender he can go and play high up the pitch as well, and that is what we need in the squad."

The left-footed defender is Mourinho's fifth player departure, with Donald Love and Patrick McNair having been sold to Sunderland, and Adnan Januzaj completing a loan move to the Premier League side.

Blackett signed a three-year contract with Reading, but the transfer fee was not disclosed.
