City boss Mike Phelan plucked youngster Weir from Manchester United’s reserves, a team he captained during 2016. He was given a City debut in the League Cup but he failed to impress Phelan and his successor Silva, and spent the second half of 2016/17 on loan at Wigan Athletic. During the 2017/18 season his role was to support the first team during the first few months, but he picked up a nasty injury that kept him out of the side for over a year.
Weir was at his local club Preston North End as a teenager before signing for Manchester United at the age of 16. He made his sole senior appearance for the Red Devils in February 2016.
Weir represented England at under-16 and under-18 levels.
