Manchester United are set to complete a deal for defender Sergio Reguilon imminently.

The loan deal has come together quickly over the past few hours. The Athletic reported earlier today that Manchester United had shelved a deal for Marc Cucurella and switched to sign Sergio Reguilon instead.

Reguilon is set to join Manchester United on a season long loan, however, Manchester United can cancel this in January, Fabrizio Romano reports.

United have been looking for experienced cover at left-back with Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia injured.
