Manchester United will keep close tabs on the progress of Ryan Sessegnon and Kieran Tierney over the next 12 months after putting their search for a new left-back on hold, according to reports in the British regional media.

The Manchester Evening News is reporting that the Red Devils have shelved plans to bring in a new left-back this summer and will instead keep an eye on the likes of Tierney and Sessegnon over the next season with a view to a possible bid next summer.

The Red Devils have been strongly linked with both players in recent months, but the latest reports suggest that they are no longer on the lookout for a new signing on the left side of defence.

The same report says that both Sessegnon of Fulham and Tierney of Celtic are long-term targets for the Red Devils, but there are unlikely to be any transfers this summer.

Manchester United have already begun their summer spending spree by completing deals to land both Brazilian midfielder Fred and young full-back Diogo Dalot.

The Red Devils are aiming to build a squad capable of challenging for the Premier League title next season after they finished second and without a trophy last term.
