Ten Hag: Man Utd will not sign a striker in January

Erik ten Hag has said Manchester United will not sign a striker in January due to financial restrictions.

Speaking in his press conference ahead of United's FA Cup fourth round match against Newport, the Dutchman said: "I looked but there is no space.

"There is no space for FFP to do something about this lack of quantity in the striker position.

Rasmus Hojlund - a £72m summer signing from Atalanta - has scored just twice in the Premier League so far, while Antony Martial has been ruled out until April with a groin injury.

"Of course, [Marcus] Rashford can play as a striker; we have some other alternatives and it's clear that Anthony is out for a couple of months it's a gap in our squad, clear."
