That’s according to talkSPORT who claim that Erik ten Hag has decided to keep Wan-Bissaka after not signing a new right-back.

David Moyes is clearly keen to bolster his right-back department at the London Stadium as concerns persist about Vladimir Coufal’s form and Ben Johnson’s injury.

Moyes has been a really busy man in the transfer market already this summer.

The Scot has signed eight new players so far, including two centre-backs, a defensive midfielder, a left winger, a centre-forward, a midfield play-maker, a left wing-back and a goalkeeper.

However, it seems as though Moyes wanted another signing before tonight’s 11pm deadline…

West Ham have Aaron Wan-Bissaka approach rejected

talkSPORT claims that the Hammers have made an official approach to sign the 24-year-old Man United right-back.

Unfortunately for us, Manchester United have rejected that approach.

That’s a real shame. We think that the 24-year-old would be a sensational addition to David Moyes’ ranks.

He joined Manchester United three years ago from Crystal Palace for around £50 million (Independent).

Wan-Bissaka possesses blistering pace. And that recovery speed would have enabled us to push further up the pitch, which ties in perfectly with Moyes saying that he wants his team to become more of a possession based side.

If you are to do that, you need real recovery pace at the back and AWB possesses that in abundance.

The Manchester United right-back is an exceptional defender and is one of the very best tacklers around.

According to talkSPORT though, West Ham won’t be signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Manchester United on transfer deadline day.
