West Ham are unlikely to return for Manchester United captain Harry Maguire after seeing a £20m bid knocked back, news agency PA understands.

The Old Trafford giants made the England international the most expensive defender in history when they signed him from Leicester in 2019 for £80m.

Maguire is quickly donning the captain’s armband, but a lack of form and game time led Erik ten Hag to appoint Bruno Fernandes as United’s new captain this month.

Many clubs have been linked with a summer move for the out-of-favour defender and West Ham have seen a £20m bid for the 30-year-old rejected.

PA understand the European Conference League winners are unlikely to make another move for him after seeing his bid rejected.

Maguire has dropped down the pecking order at United under the Ten Hag, but sources suggest he is still considered a valuable part of the squad and have stressed he is not being pushed out.

The defender has remained a key member of the England squad despite a poor 2022/23 campaign, but his place could be under threat if things do not improve ahead of Euro 2024.
