The Tunisian international was the subject of several Championship loan inquiries last season, but Birmingham, West Brom, Millwall and Middlesbrough are all interested in signing the youngster this time around.

Hannibal, who was signed by United from Monaco three years ago, made two Premier League appearances last season.

As well as interest from Championship sides, the 16-time Tunisia international is also attracting interest from Portuguese side Braga, who like United have qualified for the Europa League, and two Spanish clubs.

Sky Sports report that a decision on Hannibal’s loan destination is expected early this week.

The same report states that Erik ten Hag and his coaching staff have been happy with Hannibal’s performances in matches and in training.

Potentially playing week in, week out in the Championship will test and improve Hannibal and he’ll be hoping to have a similar influential impact in the second tier of English football to that of James Garner.

Garner played an influential role in helping Nottingham Forest secure promotion back up to the Premier League and the England Under-21 international made his first appearance under Ten Hag in yesterday’s 2-2 draw against Aston Villa.

Another talented youngster who looks set to depart Manchester United on loan is Alvaro Fernandez who watched Preston North End play Leicester City amid a potential loan move.
