Hull City’s move for Manchester United’s Tom Cleverley could find itself delayed beyond the point of being saved before the transfer window slams shut on Monday, as reported by the Daily Express.
Former Manchester United captain Steve Bruce is now of the belief that the move will not be completed in time for the deadline, stopping Hull from capturing a key transfer target.
He did, however, suggest that further business could go through by the end of tomorrow.
Speaking on Sunday, Bruce said: “I thought maybe a couple of days ago it might be close. It’s difficult to talk about other people’s players.
“But we do expect to be busy before the deadline.”
West Ham have also rejected a bid for Momo Diame from the Yorkshire club.
There are expected to be a spate of departures from Old Trafford tomorrow, with a significant percentage of the squad considered to be surplus to requirements. Louis van Gaal has already overseen the departure of Shinji Kagawa today, with Javier Hernandez also expected to move to Real Madrid.
Man Utd drew their third match of the new Premier League season 0-0 against Burnley, while Hull lost 2-1 to Aston Villa.
