Man Utd midfielder James Garner wanted by Spurs, Leeds and Southampton in transfer scramble as Red Devils demand £14m


MANCHESTER UNITED’s 21-year-old midfielder James Garner — who has never started a Premier League game for them — is of interest to Tottenham, Leeds and Southampton.

But none are willing to meet the £14million price-tag the Red Devils have slapped on the midfielder, who has been loaned out three times.

Erik ten Hag’s club are willing to let him go despite turning down previous offers this summer with Aston Villa and Newcastle also interested.

Garner has featured just twice in the Prem for Manchester United – both as a substitute and with the most recent coming during the 2019-20 season.

In total he’s made seven appearances.

He went on loan to Watford for the first half of the 2020-21 season, where he made 20 appearances in the Championship.

The Merseyside born star then spent the second half of the season at Nottingham Forest.

He extended his stay at the City Ground, making 41 appearances the following term and helping them get promoted to the Premier League.

Playing in a central defensive role, Manchester United clearly see little hope of him making his way into the first team.

That view will only have intensified with the £70m arrival of Casemiro from Real Madrid.

He has two years remaining on his contract.

Manchester United’s more pressing concern is their upcoming clash with bitter rivals Liverpool on Monday night.

They go into the Old Trafford clash off the back of two defeats from their first two games of the season.
