Man United are set to agree a new deal with teenage striker Joe Hugill over the coming days.
The Red Devils are keen to tie the striker down to a new deal after impressing during pre-season. However, the decision is also set to increase his transfer fee after increased interest in the forward from EFL clubs.
Joe Hugill set to sign extended Man United deal
The latest reports at Manchester Evening News claim that the Red Devils are keen to reward the striker after Erik ten Hag and the United coaching staff were impressed by Hugill during the pre-season tour of the United States.
A number of EFL clubs were interested in a loan move for the forward during the summer, but United opted to keep hold of the striker.
Hugill has impressed in Premier League 2 already this term, as he has netted three goals and an assist in four appearances for the Red Devils.
The 19-year-old came through the ranks at Newcastle and Sunderland before joining the United academy in 2020. He spent last season on loan at Altrincham, scoring once in seven appearances in the National League.
