Manchester United have reportedly made an approach to Brentford over the availability of defender Rico Henry.

United boss Erik ten Hag is keen to bring in a new left-back with both Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia out with injuries.

The Daily Mail reports that United have made initial checks on Henry ahead of the closure of the transfer window on Friday.

Tottenham defender Sergio Reguilon and Chelsea ace Marc Cucurella have also been linked with United in recent days.
