Posh borrow United rookies

The length of the deals is yet to be disclosed. Midfielder

Tunnicliffe, 18, and 19-year-old defender Wootton have yet to make

their first-team United debuts. Wootton, who switched to the Red

Devils from the Liverpool academy in 2007, played nine times during

a loan spell at Tranmere last season. Posh chairman Darragh

MacAnthony confirmed the deals on Twitter, saying: “Gaffer just

told me two United lads signed on loan, Tunnicliffe & Wootton

signed up.” Ferguson took a number of United players on loan during

his time as Preston boss.
