Manchester United defender Harry Maguire has revealed why his much-anticipated move to West Ham United in the summer failed to materialise.

The England international has been tipped to join the Hammers during the transfer window after failing to convince Erik ten Hag.

David Moyes and West Ham were willing to offer the player an escape route from troubles away from Old Trafford.

And while an agreement was reached with Man United, Maguire says he was unable to agree on personal terms with the East London club.

“We didn’t come to an agreement,” Maguire said during the international break.

“Of course, my England career is a big priority,” he added. “And so is my club career.

“I considered everything and I know, at the moment, when I have not started a game in the first four games of the season, the story comes to me.

“I finished off last season with two very strong performances for England and I have played in all five matches to help put us where we are in qualifying, so I need to keep performing when I get chosen.

“Listen, at club football, I want to play games, I want to play football.

“The first four weeks were hard because it was one game a week and the manager didn’t select me but we have lots of games coming up now and I am sure I will play lots of games.”

Maguire is yet to start a game for United this season but could come into the starting lineup when they face Brighton this weekend.
