The clubs summer signing has yet to set the world on fire for Manchester United, but Erik ten Hag sees Mount playing a deeper role in the squad.

Manchester United signed midfielder Mason Mount from Chelsea earlier this summer, signing a contract until the end of the 2027-28 season, with the option of a further year.

With the news of Mounts injury, it is likely that midfielder Scott McTominay will be handed some game time over the next few weeks in the lead up to the International break. But such an addition will likely see Scott off the transfer list until January.

Huge blow for United about Mount, get fit soon, Mason!
