Manchester United are not anticipating any further significant youth departures ahead of transfer deadline day next week.

United have once again looked to loan out a number of promising young talents in the summer transfer window, although there is no rush for them to sanction anymore.

Tahith Chong, Nathan Bishop, Will Fish, Reece Devine, Di’Shon Bernard, Ethan Laird, Dylan Levitt, James Garner and Ethan Galbraith have already left the club on loan this summer, while midfielder Charlie McCann secured a permanent move to Rangers.

Teden Mengi had been poised to re-join Derby on a season-long loan but now looks set to stay at the club beyond the deadline, while Matej Kovar is also set to remain with the U23s after a loan spell with Swindon last year.

The duo had both provisionally been marked as candidates for loan departures in the current window but United sources admit it is unlikely either will leave unless late interest is shown.

Speaking to MEN Sport earlier this month United’s head of academy Nick Cox reiterated a desire to loan out players who would benefit more from earning meaningful minutes in a professional environment.

“It is important to accelerate the boys learning, to move them through the development plans at the right pace for them,” Cox said. “Potentially you could be looking at upwards of five or ten players out of the building who could well have played for the U23s. I’m pretty confident we’d win every week if we kept those boys, but our job isn’t about assembling a winning team.

“Yes we want them to be competitive, we always play to win, but ultimately I can never do that at the expense of their development. Winning should be the by-product.”
