Man Utd ‘REJECT last-minute Aaron Wan-Bissaka transfer bid from West Ham’ as Erik ten Hag wants him as backup
ERIK TEN HAG has rejected a late West Ham bid for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, it’s been claimed.
The big-spending Hammers, who have forked out upwards of £100million this summer, are eager to bring in more defensive reinforcements before the window shuts tonight.
And according to The Metro, manager David Moyes has had a late inquiry over Wan-Bissaka knocked back by Manchester United.
That’s according to The Metro, who claim Ten Hag is a fan of the 24-year-old and wants to keep him as “back up” for Diogo Dalot.
It’s unknown how much West Ham were reportedly willing to pay the Red Devils for the former England Under-21 international.
Wan-Bissaka was United’s first-choice right-back for two seasons following his £50million arrival from Crystal Palace in the summer of 2019.
But he’s yet to impress Ten Hag enough to be handed a starting berth this season, with his sole appearance lasting a meagre four minutes.
Ten Hag, however, is a self-proffesed fan of the wingback – who he insists will feature plenty this season.
The Dutchman said this week: “Aaron showed in the past that he is a constant factor at United. I have trust in him.
“I haven’t seen him that much because he was injured in pre-season.

“What I heard, he is a good option. He’s been training and needs to compete for the position.”
He added: “Aaron is in and we will keep [him], he will stay in.
“So this squad will go from September until the minimum, January. We will play with this squad [for] the season.”
Wan-Bissaka will be hoping to start United’s Premier League clash with Arsenal, whom they’ll welcome to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
