has praised ’s ‘fantastic’ impact on after the midfielder revealed his desire to remain at the club.

The Austrian joined United in January from on a loan deal for the remainder of the season.

Sabitzer was unhappy with his playing time in Bavaria but he’s found minutes in Manchester, with 12 appearances to his name so far.

Though the loan deal did not include an option to buy, the former RB Leipzig ace has revealed that at Old Trafford permanently.

United would ideally like to lower the average age of their midfield by signing someone like Jude Bellingham, given Fred, Casemiro and Christian Eriksen are all the wrong side of 30.

But Ten Hag has suggested they will try to sign Sabitzer on a permanent basis.

‘He’s an intelligent player and we’re happy with his role at this moment.’

Sabitzer could be rested on Thursday for the Europa League clash against Sevilla.
