Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag wants to keep midfielder Zidane Iqbal to help his progress while goalkeeper Nathan Bishop is poised to join Wycombe.

The teenage midfielder was introduced to United fans last season when he made his professional debut in the Champions League during a 1-1 draw against Young Boys in December.

Zidane signed a new long-term deal to stay at Old Trafford last month and has excelled in United’s pre-season games this summer.

The 19-year-old did not look out of place when coming up against the likes of Fabinho, Thiago Alcantara and Naby Keita during Man United’s 4-0 win against Liverpool earlier this month.

His progress over the last 12 months has seen him play for Iraq’s national team in World Cup qualifiers against Iran and Lebanon off the bench. 

Meanwhile, Bishop looks destined to sign for League One side Wycombe in search of more experience.

The 22-year-old spent last season on loan at Mansfield where he made 46 league appearances as the team failed to gain promotion to League One after losing the play-off final. 

As well as making four new signings, a number of players such as Andreas Perriera, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Nemanja Matic have all headed for the Old Trafford exit. 

Ten Hag’s side will open the new campaign with a home game against Brighton on August 7.
