Manchester United are continuing to try and shift players out of Erik ten Hag’s squad with the transfer deadline looming.

Manchester United‘s transfer window closes at 11 pm on Friday 1 September, with Erik ten Hag‘s squad still needing several sales in order to fund their final transfer targets.

With the club still wanting a second-choice goalkeeper and another defensive midfielder through the door with less than eight days remaining on the market, the news is starting to filter through of several sales – but any are yet to materialise.

One player who has been deemed surplus to requirements is academy full-back Brandon Williams, who has been told that he can leave the club on a permanent basis this summer.

This is according to Samuel Luckhurst of the Manchester Evening News, who claims that former United coach Kieran McKenna has “touched base” with Brandon Williams about a transfer to Ipswich.

Ipswitch currently sit at the top of the Championship table, having won all three of their opening fixtures. McKenna has impressed since joining the club in December 2021 from Manchester United.

He was an assistant coach to Ole Gunnar Solskjær, who favoured Brandon Williams as a right-footed left-back, and so knows the Englishman’s talent well.

United are also looking to sell Donny van de Beek this transfer window in order to fund a move for either Ryan Gravenberch or Sofyan Amrabat, and are close to completing a deal for Fenerbahçe goalkeeper Altay Bayındır.
