Manchester United will reportedly trigger an extension clause in Jesse Lingard's contract to keep him at the club until 2022.
The 28-year-old has only been included in two matchday squads in the Premier League so far this season and is yet to be handed a single minute of top-flight action in 2020-21.
Lingard's current contract expires at the end of this season and he will be free to discuss terms over a summer transfer away from Old Trafford from the beginning of January.
However, the Daily Mail reports that Man United will trigger the one-year extension clause in his current deal to prevent him from leaving for free at the end of this season.
However, the Red Devils are keen to recoup a transfer fee for their homegrown talent if they sell him on a permanent basis in 2021.
Lingard has been at Man United since the age of eight, making more than 200 first-team appearances for the club.
