A £20m bid for Bournemouth striker Joshua King was earlier rejected as United target cover in the absence of the injured Marcus Rashford, but their pursuit of the Norway international appears to have ended.

Tottenham also made their own late attempt to secure a loan deal for 30-year-old striker Ighalo from Shanghai Shenhua on Deadline Day.

Odion Ighalo is presently at China in preseason training with Shangai Shenhua.

However, a move to Spurs is not expected to materialise because if Ighalo does leave China he will go elsewhere, potentially to United before the deadline.

A medical could be held in China, but United still face a race to complete a move before the deadline closes.
