Manchester United reportedly withdraw their interest in signing West Ham United youngster Kai Corbett.

Manchester United have reportedly ended their interest in signing West Ham United youngster Kai Corbett.

While the 17-year-old is highly regarded at the London Stadium, he has recently had trials with Bristol City and United.

After failing to earn a move to the Championship outfit, Corbett netted in a second-string outing for United, increasing the possibility of a switch to Old Trafford.

However, according to reliable Twitter account 'ExWHUemployee', the Premier League giants do not intend to follow up their interest.

The social media user said: "He was on trial at Manchester United but if he leaves West Ham, his new club have to pay a large compensation deal and Manchester United felt he wasn't worth that apparently."

Corbett made two substitute outings for the Hammers Under-21 side in the EFL Trophy earlier this season.
