Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will decide this week which Manchester United players he is willing to allow out on loan
The United manager knows he needs a strong squad to contend with the rigours of a Champions League campaign following a quick summer turnaround. That will also be influenced by what additions United make with Solskjaer keen to strengthen in attack, midfield and defence.
One player who has drawn a number of enquiries is midfielder James Garner.
The highly-rated 19-year-old has interest from the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and Doncaster Rovers but Championship play-off rivals Cardiff City and Swansea City are also very much in the hunt.
Much will hinge on whether those two remain in the second tier with United keen for Garner to play regularly should he go out for the season.
They want him to continue his progress with more competitive football mindful that, if they reach agreement with Aston Villa for Jack Grealish, there will be even less scope for him in their first team set-up.
Swansea, in particular, may need to replace Conor Gallagher who is on loan from Chelsea but attracting interest from Premier League sides.
