will not let Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg leave on loan in January, amid interest from , according to reports.

late in the summer transfer window before the Red Devils opted to sign instead.

It seemed a certainty that the Danish international would be leaving North London after he was courted by both and a Saudi Pro League side.

A £30million deal with the former was reportedly agreed, but they couldn’t settle on personal terms with the midfielder, with Spurs later rejecting a loan offer from the Spanish club.

And though Spurs may still be open to selling Hojbjerg, reports that they zero interest in a loan deal for the player who remains a target for some of Europe’s biggest clubs.

Ajax and Juventus are interested, while United may still be keen given their midfield issues which have in part been caused by Amrabat’s poor form.

Hojbjerg signed for Spurs from Southampton in 2020 in a deal worth £15m, and has gone onto make 158 appearances for the club, scoring 10 goals and making 16 assists.

A key player under Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte, the 28-year-old isn’t as well-admired by Ange Postecoglou, hence the willingness to sell him for the right price.

10 of his 12 Premier League appearances this season have come from the bench, with Pape Matar Sarr, Yves Bissouma and James Maddison the manager’s preferred midfield trio.

However, with the club enduring a terrible injury crisis, with Maddison and Rodrigo Bentancur among those sidelined until next year, Postecoglou has little choice but to call upon Hojbjerg.

The injury crisis may well affect Spurs’ stance on selling the player altogether, but for now he is expected to play some role in their next game away to Manchester City on Sunday.

Having lost their last three games in a row, the Lilywhites are now fifth in the table, three points behind the Citizens and a further point behind league leaders and arch-rivals Arsenal.
