Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said Manchester United are looking to clinch more signings before the summer transfer window closes.

United have signed Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James, both 21, this summer, but Solskjaer told reporters the club is working to complete further additions:

“As I’ve said and answered a few times, we’re working on one or two cases. But obviously my objective now when I’m here is we’ve got to get ready for the games and training sessions.

“And if I’ve got to travel somewhere I will. And you won’t be able to ask me.

“We’re working on putting a squad together that can compete. Of course we have some youngsters but we have loads of players that can play and loads of ways we can play.”

A number of players have been linked with the club, and Newcastle United midfielder Sean Longstaff has revealed that he is “flattered” by Manchester United’s interest in signing him.

“I just keep my head down. I am just trying to get fit—that’s all I can focus on. I am still a Newcastle player.

“I want to get back on the pitch as soon as I can. That is what I am looking forward to doing. I make more and more progress every day, that’s all I look forward to. I can’t wait to get on the pitch and impress the new boss.

“…For me, it is all a positive really. It gives you even more confidence. When I was in for a short amount of time people took notice of me. It is flattering but my job is at Newcastle.”
