Cameron Borthwick-Jackson could return to Manchester United in January, according to Wolves manager Paul Lambert.

Borthwick-Jackson, 19, was promoted into the United first-team squad last season under Louis van Gaal but was allowed to leave the club on loan following Jose Mourinho's return to the Premier League.

The left-back joined Wolves on a season-long loan in August and started four of the club's next seven games following his arrival. A change in manager however brought that run in the team to an end, with Lambert replacing Walter Zenga at the start of November.

Borthwick-Jackson has not featured for the club since. Speaking to the Express and Star, former Aston Villa manager Lambert explained the youngster is not experienced enough to hold down a senior role in his side, with talks with the club chairman planned in the next few weeks to decide whether his loan spell at the club will carry on into 2017.

"Cameron's obviously on loan here and hasn't really featured under me, just because I felt we needed a bit more experience," Lambert said. "He's a young lad, a tidy and nice footballer, and he's got to fight his way to get into the side. But he never lets himself down in training. He trains well."

Lambert is hoping to strengthen his squad in the January transfer window but is not yet sure of Borthwick-Jackson will be part of his plans.

"Come January, [Wolves sporting director] Kevin Thelwell and myself will start to get a squad we think can help. There's been no official decision on Cameron and won't be for another few weeks."

Borthwick-Jackson made his United debut against West Brom in November 2016, making 14 appearances in all.
