Manchester United have agreed a deal which will see Anthony Martial join Sevilla on loan for the rest of the season, subject to a medical.

There is no option to buy and no loan fee but the Spanish club will cover the striker’s wages.

France forward Martial, 26, has been targeted by the Spanish club for a number of months.

It is thought he has indicated a willingness to take a pay cut to allow the deal to go through.

Martial, who joined from Monaco for £36m in 2015, has told Ralf Rangnick he wants a change of scenery.

That view has not changed even though Martial featured for the first time since interim United boss Rangnick took charge when he came on as a substitute in Saturday’s 1-0 win against West Ham.

Martial has made 11 United appearances this season, scoring a single goal, against Everton on 2 October.

Sevilla are challenging for the La Liga title and are currently second in the table, four points behind leaders Real Madrid with 16 games remaining.

Martial is one of a number of United players with uncertain futures.

Jesse Lingard is still wanted by Newcastle, although BBC Sport has been told reports the Magpies have offered a £10m loan fee for the England international, whose contract expires in the summer, are wide of the mark.

Goalkeeper Dean Henderson, 24, is also looking to try to find regular football after losing out to David de Gea in the battle to be United’s number one.

The Premier League winter transfer window closes at 23:00 GMT on 31 January.
