A trio of Championship clubs have had loan offers rejected for Manchester United defender Tyler Blackett, according to ESPN.
Watford, Fulham and Blackburn Rovers have seen loan offers rejected for the Manchester United starlet ahead of the emergency loan deadline on Thursday, United have rejected the bid in case they need him for the end of the season.
The 20-year-old broke into the Old Trafford first team this season and featured heavily in their pre-season games against the likes of Real Madrid, Roma, Liverpool and Inter.
He impressed at the start of the Premier League season as he covered for the injured Jonny Evans, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo. He hasn’t featured since a defeat to Southampton, but was handed a further two year deal in January.
All three Championship sides will be looking to take a defender on loan to cope with the run in to the Championship season.
Blackburn Rovers are 10th in the Championship and have amassed 54 points this season, Watford are second with 72 points and Fulham 20th on 43 points.
