Harry Maguire ‘loves’ Manchester United and has no intention of leaving the club this summer.

The defender fell out of favour under Erik ten Hag last season and is now arguably fifth choice centre-back at Old Trafford.

United accepted a £30million bid from West Ham for the defender last week but Maguire rejected a move to the London Stadium.

The 30-year-old, who was stripped of the captaincy earlier this summer, believes he can break back into the United starting XI.

A source close to Maguire says the defender says he never spoke to David Moyes over a move to West Ham, and wants to remain at the Theatre of Dreams.

‘To be clear there was never an agreement in place between Harry and West Ham.’ a source told the BBC.

‘The process was less advanced than portrayed in the media. For example, at no point has Harry spoken to David Moyes.

‘Harry remains settled at United, loves the club and believes he will get plenty of opportunities to play this season.’
