The former Whites youngster had featured heavily for the club's Under-18s outfit this season, appearing in the Premier League 2 on a regular basis.

McMillan also played a role in United's FA Youth Cup and EFL Trophy ties earlier in the campaign.

The 18-year-old, though, has left West Yorkshire with immediate effect and put pen-to-paper on a deal with Fleetwood until the end of the 2022/23 season.
