Everton manager Ronald Koeman has refused to confirm speculation linking Morgan Schneiderlin with a summer exit from Manchester United.
He has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford in the January transfer window and Sky Sports have reported that West Brom have made an £18m bid for his services.
The Frenchman has struggled for game time under Jose Mourinho this season and despite only moving to Man United for £27m in the summer of 2015, has only played 90 minutes just once this campaign.
Speaking about links, Koeman insists he saw the West Brom claims and will talk to Director of Football Steve Walsh about the situation.
“I don’t speak about players. I saw the [West Brom] stories,” he said.
“I speak to Steve Walsh and the board about what we need to do in January, you will see what happens.
“Of course I know Morgan, we worked one season together then he went to Man United.”
Koeman managed Schneiderlin during the 2014-15 season and it seems United will be willing to take a loss on his price as he has fallen further down the pecking order at Old Trafford.
It’s a shame because he arrived at the club under Louis van Gaal as a dominant figure, quickly becoming a fan favourite, but he hasn’t been able to replicate his success under Mourinho.
