Di’Shon Bernard Signs On Loan

30 July 2021

Hull City are delighted to announce the signing of Manchester United defender Di’Shon Bernard on a season-long loan.

The 20-year-old right-sided centre-back, who is highly thought of at Old Trafford, becomes Head Coach Grant McCann’s sixth summer signing.

Formerly of Chelsea’s Academy, Wandsworth-born Bernard joined the Red Devils in July 2017 and made his United first-team debut against Astana in the Europa League in November 2019.

He spent last season on loan at Salford and made 31 appearances for the play-off chasing Ammies, helping them keep 15 clean sheets and record the best defensive record in League Two.

McCann said: “Everyone knows we were in the market for a right-sided centre-half and we’ve waited patiently for Di’Shon.

“The fact he’s been in the Manchester United first team the past few weeks and been part of their pre-season plans shows how highly they think of him.

“From speaking to Michael Carrick, and one or two other people at Man United and Salford, I feel it’s a positive progression for the lad.

“He’s confident and got lots of qualities; he’s quick, good at handling the ball, aggressive in the way he plays, wants to play on the front foot and likes to drive forward.

“We feel we’ve got a really good player on our hands and we’re looking forward to working with him.”
