Erik ten Hag confirms Man United player will leave club in January transfer window

Erik ten Hag is expected to be busy in the January transfer window and he's already confirmed one mooted departure from Manchester United.

United are said to be looking for reinforcements in four different areas when the window reopens.

But Ten Hag will not stand in the way of Donny van De Beek, who has had a nightmare stint at United.

He signed from Ajax in a £35 million move and at the time it looked like a tidy signing from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

But Van de Beek never got going and could not nail down a spot in the team.

The Netherlands international was loaned out to Everton in January 2022 but that spell was unprolific.

Many thought that the appointment of Ten Hag would give him a new lease of life given the two worked together at Ajax.

Yet that didn't happen and Van de Beek managed just seven appearances in the Premier League last season prior to a devastating knee injury that ended his campaign.

Potential moves in the summer never materialised and Van de Beek has managed just two league minutes.

In the last two seasons, Van de Beek has only played 15 times in the league and after removing him from his Champions League squad, Ten Hag admits he finally needs to move on.

Asked about the 26-year-old in a recent press conference, Ten Hag said: "I can see he has to play for his career and for everything."

Lorient and Real Sociedad were two clubs linked with Van de Beek in the summer.

He will be hoping a move away can help him force his way back into the Netherlands squad.
