Manchester United winger Facundo Pellistri will join Alavés on loan for the rest of the season, according to Sky Sports.

A deal for the 19-year-old Uruguayan has been agreed in principle with the LaLiga club. Manchester United are expected to confirm the transfer on Saturday.

The tricky attacker joined United from Uruguayan giants Peñarol last summer. Pellistri has only featured for the club’s reserve team this season.
