Man United have reportedly made up their mind not to send academy talents Arnau Puigmal and Ethan Laird out of the club on loan deals this season after adequate considerations and analysis.

It is understood that the two starlets were to be sent out on loan by the Red Devils before Friday’s domestic deadline but that will not happen again despite the fact that playing time for the duo is in the first team is almost impossible.

The Red Devils have invested in a number of youth players and there is no doubt that that more of them have been shipped out on loan deals so as to help their development and gain more playing time.

However, it will be a different situation for Arnau Puigmal and Ethan Laird. The latter has been training with the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer team and the former as well. Manchester Evening News has hinted that they will remain at the club.

The Red Devise made a number of signings on the summer transfer deadline day and that has added to the depth of the squad, limiting the chances of younger players having playing time in the first team as well as in their various youth teams this season.
