Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Manchester United have knocked back West Ham’s approach for Aaron Wan-Bissaka on transfer deadline day, according to reports.

Thursday is the final day for Premier League clubs to get deals done, and the Hammers are said to have tried to sign the Red Devils defender to fix their ailing backline.

But as reported by Talksport, United manager Erik ten Hag has rejected their attempts to sign Wan-Bissaka because he wants cover for first-choice Diogo Dalot.

Crystal Palace were also believed to be interested in the 24-year-old, three years after selling the right back to the Old Trafford side for £50million.

But United wanted to sign a replacement before letting Wan-Bissaka go, and it now appears with no-one joining in that position, he will be retained as competition and back-up for Portuguese Dalot.

Out-of-favour Barcelona full back Sergino Dest was reportedly considering a late reunion at United with former boss Ten Hag.

But he is now said to be flying out to AC Milan for his medical with the deal 100 per cent done in a blow to the Premier League side.

Wan-Bissaka has made 127 appearances for United in all competitions since joining in June 2019, scoring two goals.

However, he is out of favour under new boss Ten Hag and could now struggle for regular game time.
