Though Manchester United are perhaps done in terms of incomings in this transfer window, a number of players are still set to leave the club.
The Old Trafford futures of the likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo are still relatively unclear, but one player who definitely looks to be on the way out is striker Will Keane.
Sky Sports are this evening reporting that the 23-year-old is having a medical at Hull City ahead of a £1m move to the Premier League side.

Keane had been widely expected to leave the club this summer, as new Man United manager José Mourinho had made it abundantly clear that he was not in the boss’s plans – and while a number of Championship clubs were chasing him, the chance to remain in the Premier League is an unexpected bonus for the player.
Keane was one of the most highly-rated young forwards to have come through the Manchester United academy in years, winning their Young Player of the Year award in 2010.
However, it never really worked out for him. A succession of loan spells at various Championship clubs yielded mixed results, and given the fact that he is now 23, the chances of him making an impact at senior level for the club seemed highly remote.
He now moves to a Hull side scrambling for players before the transfer window closes on Wednesday night. Goalkeeper David Marshall is also set for a medical with the club, while the Tigers have agreed a fee of around £12m for Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason as they look to pad out their threadbare squad.
As it is, they remain the only team in the Premier League yet to sign a single first-team player.
