Westham who are currently languishing in the relegation zone made an attempt to land Harry Maguire on loan for the rest of the season, but saw their interest in the defender rejected by Manchester united.

West Ham United’s desperate bid to bolster their defensive ranks by signing Manchester United captain Harry Maguire on loan has been swiftly rejected by the Red Devils.

Maguire’s future at Old Trafford has been a source of speculation in recent weeks, with the 29-year-old defender no longer a guaranteed starter under manager Erik ten Hag.

Despite West Ham’s struggles, sitting 18th in the Premier League with only 15 points, United were unwilling to part with the experienced center-back, as the former Ajax manager is keen to keep him for the remainder of the season.

The Red devils are still in four competitions this season and will hope to keep all their players so as to ensure squad depth and reduce the workload on their important players.

Maguire has made 15 appearances for United this season, but only seven as a starter and will be hoping to get minutes as Manchester United are set for a very crucial run of games.
