Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek was reportedly prevented from leaving the club on loan during the summer window - and his agent has now hit out at the club for failing to 'co-operate' during talks.
Van de Beek joined from Ajax for £35million in September 2020 but has not been able to make a first-team impact and regularly finds himself benched. As a result, his camp were keen to secure him regular football.
But with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said to have stopped him from joining Everton, Guido Albers has reiterated that there was plenty of enquiries for Van de Beek from across Europe, and said to now expect him to play more for United.

'There was a lot of interest from Italy, Germany, England, so that looked good,' Albers told Voetbal International. 'But you need the co-operation of the club, and it looked like they would, but ultimately they didn't.
'Disappointed, but also assuring for him, so that he will get his chance, and will get his minutes, but this will become clear in due time.
'He's been promised that before, but we came to a clear agreement about this with the club, so we have all faith that it will happen now.'
Van de Beek attracted interest from multiple clubs but will stay at United until at least January
Quizzed further on whether Van de Beek himself is disgruntled by the stance from United, Albers added: 'I won't say. But everybody who knows Donny knows he loves the game and he wants to be on the pitch every week.
'So from this answer, you can probably tell what he wanted most.'
