Sir Alex Ferguson looks set to disappoint a host of clubs by not allowing starlet Will Keane to leave Manchester United on loan.
The England Under-21 striker has a number of teams looking to land him on a season-long loan.
Ferguson has admitted that several of his younger prospects would be allowed temporary moves, with nearly a dozen of his academy products loaned out this season.
However, it appears that Keane, his twin brother Michael and midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe may get the chance within the first team next season.
"We've got the next tier of players around the age of 24," he said.
"They're young enough to stay with us for a few years and hopefully we can build a team around that nucleus.
"There are one or two young players in the reserves who are doing very well, Will Keane will definitely come into the squad next year, his brother Michael is doing very well too and the boy [Ryan] Tunnicliffe looks as though he's got a chance."
