Manchester United are now set for the second-half of the season after the January transfer window slammed shut on Thursday evening. Business at Old Trafford was purely outgoing, with loans for the likes of Jadon Sancho, Facundo Pellistri and Hannibal Mejbri - some of which contain options to buy.

Erik ten Hag and his men enjoyed an excellent deadline-day on the field, with Kobbie Mainoo scoring a dramatic winner in a 4-3 win at Wolves. And in the meantime, ManchesterWorld has rounded up some of the latest headlines.

Another striker offered

United were reportedly offered a number of striker options during the January window and Sebastian Haller is the latest name to emerge. HITC reports that representatives of the Borussia Dortmund frontman put out feelers to a number of Premier League clubs.

Haller has fallen down the pecking order at Dortmund, making just four starts in the Bundesliga and registering zero goals. The German side were open to letting their striker leave on loan for the remainder of the season but ultimately found no suitors.

United were thought to be open to adding in that area of the pitch, following confirmation that Anthony Martial will be out for a round 10 weeks after undergoing surgery on a groin complaint. Rasmus Hojlund is the only recognised No.9 available.

Bergvall decision

Swedish wonderkid Lucas Bergvall is thought to have decided to join Tottenham in the summer, snubbing interest from the likes of United and Barcelona. Sky Sports are among several outlets to report the midfielder's decision.

Bergvall turned 18 today, allowing him to sign a first professional contract and he has decided to join Ange Postecoglou's side. The teenager will spend the rest of this season at Djurgarden with the deal in place for the summer, hence it didn't need to be completed before Thursday's 11pm deadline. 

United were among several sides thought to be monitoring Bergvall's development in Sweden, where he has already played 29 times at club level and made his senior debut for the national team.
