Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has cast doubt on whether Scott McTominay, a target for Celtic, will leave the club in this month's transfer window.

McTominay has been mooted as a possible reinforcement for Celtic, with Bhoys manager Brendan Rodgers looking to bolster his squad to see off a title challenge from rivals Rangers.

But Solskjaer, who rates McTominay highly, has indicated that injury issues could mean that the midfielder is unlikely to be allowed to leave Old Trafford this month.

Asked about McTominay potentially leaving on loan, Solskjaer said at a press conference via MUTV: "Scott is working hard.

"He is a young boy I still believe in and we are working on his contract.

"With the injury of Felli [Marouane Fellaini] as well and the squad we have, I'm not too sure we are going to see any movement at all."

The interim Manchester United boss explained that he expects Fellaini to be out of action for up to a month.

"He will probably be around three or four weeks. He has a calf problem and that is sad."

It remains to be seen if Solskjaer might consider letting McTominay leave if Manchester United can make additions before the transfer window slams shut this month.

But the Norwegian has indicated that he does not at present expect signings, adding when asked: "Not really, no."
