He may not have made the first squad at Manchester United last season, but he earned great acclaim after overcoming cancer to return to the game.
He even played for the senior squad in a Europa League match against Astana, although he was looking for a new club after being released by United this summer.
He was on trial with Rochdale, and he certainly did enough to earn a contract when they revealed that he signed following that successful trial period:

He’s gone out on loan before, but this is his chance to make an impact on a permanent basis, and he’s a talented defender with a strong chance of playing regular games.
The primary objective for him right now is to establish himself as a starter and help Rochdale get promotion, but this appears to be a great piece of business from the League Two club.
