Bruce wants to strengthen his attacking options in this month’s window – and the club is interested in signing RB Leipzig’s Ademola Lookman on loan.

However, United’s head coach is cautious in his outlook ahead of tomorrows Premier League game against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux. Bruce said: “There have been one or two inroads, maybe. But you think you’re getting somewhere – and then it shuts in your face.”

“There’s been one or two sensational transfers over the years – (Virgil) van Dijk for example – but usually teams don’t want to sell their best players,” said Bruce. “It’s a difficult market. You end up looking at people who have fallen out with somebody – and that’s not a good thing.”
