Manchester United have made clear their stance on the future of defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka, on the back of approaches from a pair of rival Premier League clubs, according to reports.
Right-back Wan-Bissaka, of course, has fallen out of favour at Old Trafford over the early weeks of the new season.
This comes with new boss Erik ten Hag having made clear his preference for the talents of Portuguese international Diogo Dalot.
Across the Red Devils’ first four league outings of the campaign, Dalot has been afforded a starting role in each, allowing one-time big-money arrival Wan-Bissaka to rack up a paltry four minutes of playing time.
In turn, whispers had begun to spread over the course of recent days that the ex-Crystal Palace man could be on the move ahead of Thursday’s transfer deadline.
And now, as alluded to above, an insight into the chances of exactly that has been provided.
The info comes courtesy of transfer expert David Ornstein, who has confirmed that the powers that be on the red half of Manchester recently opted to reject a pair of approaches for Wan-Bissaka.
The clubs to have stepped forward for the 24-year-old’s service? West Ham United, and AWB’s ex-employers, Crystal Palace.
Erik ten Hag and co, though, have come to the conclusion that not enough time remains before the window’s close to source a replacement, with Wan-Bissaka, as a result, looking set to remain at Old Trafford for the 2022/23 campaign.
