Manchester United have confirmed that they are not ready to let England Under-21 striker Will Keane out on loan.
Red Devils reserve boss Warren Joyce revealed his delight that Keane, who is yet to make his first-team debut for United, was called up by Stuart Pearce.
Keane, whose brother Michael is also at United, came on and played in England's 5-0 win over Iceland, and a number of league clubs are believed to have shown an interest in landing him.
But Joyce admits that United want to keep hold of him for a while longer.
"It's a great little taster for him and an opportunity for him to go and work with those players at that level and the staff at that level as well," Joyce told the club's official website.
"We're pretty confident here that Will could be out there doing it in the league but there's things we want him to develop in-house before he goes out."
Keane has long been billed as one of the real gems of United's current crop of youngsters, and he has even been likened to Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
"He's very elegant on the ball and has traits like those two players," added Joyce.
"He just needs to be himself and come out and be known as Will Keane.
"Both Sheringham and Solskjaer were fantastic strikers, technicians and goalscorers but they also had a ruthless streak in them. We're trying to bring that out in Will at the minute.
"He's great and a really nice lad off the field. We're trying to get him to be ruthless, show aggression to finish runs into the box and be more desperate for goals. I think these are the things that we've got to try to drill into him and I expect him to have a bright future."
Meanwhile, Joyce also revealed that fellow youth players Ryan Tunnicliffe and Danny Drinkwater - who are both currently on loan in the Championship with Peterborough and Barnsley respectively - were back at the club this week to train with the first team.
"We try to get the loan boys back here," he said.
"Ryan has been training with the first-team and Danny was in.
"We try to bring them back during the international break just to have a little taste of training with the first team in that group today. It keeps them in the club and makes sure they feel part of things."
