But Phil Jones and Amad Diallo, who completed his £37million transfer from Atalanta, will be added to the club’s Premier League squad.
“I can confirm there won’t be anyone coming in, so don’t stay up late,” Solskjaer confirmed. “Phil has been recovering from a knee injury, an operation he had, and he’s working hard to be available again. He will be included on the list and hopefully, he’ll get his fitness back sooner rather than later and be available to play.”
“We’ve made decisions we feel have been good for individuals and for us as well. With the young players moving on, with [James] Garner, [Tahith] Chong, Mengi and Pellistri getting the chance to play more football has been important for us. And our group is a tight-knit group, we don’t have too many players in excess and hopefully Jesse can get going and play well at West Ham as well.”
The 29-year-old has been injured since June and not played for United in over a year. His contract expires in 2023.
