Sergio Reguilon has completed his Manchester United medical ahead of his Transfer Deadline Day loan move from Tottenham.

A formal announcement of his season-long loan is expected on Friday, ahead of the 11pm transfer deadline.

Sky Sports News understands the deal has a break clause in January.

The deal for the Spaniard is a straight loan as United look to sign a left-back following injuries to Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia.

United had been in talks with Chelsea over Marc Cucurella, but it is thought a deal for Reguilon and the numbers involved gives United the best chance to strike a deal with Fiorentina for midfielder Sofyan Amrabat.

Reguilon has not played a single minute for Spurs this season and spent last campaign on loan at Atletico Madrid, where he made just 12 appearances.

The 26-year-old joined Tottenham in September 2020 from Real Madrid in a £32m deal and has two years left on his contract.

With Reguilon set for a move to Old Trafford, United are continuing to work on a deal to sign Amrabat.

Fiorentina prefer a permanent deal, while United are conscious of complying with FFP rules and are exploring a loan.

It is thought a loan with an option - which triggers into an obligation - could be a compromise the Serie A club would accept, but that would depend on the loan fee and permanent price.

It is clear the 27-year-old wants to move to United and has not been training with the Fiorentina first-team squad while his future remains unresolved. The Moroccan international has one year left on his contract with the option of a further year.

Amrabat was not part of Fiorentina's squad for Thursday's Europa Conference League play-off second leg against Rapid Vienna amid speculation over his future.

Meanwhile, Sky in Italy reports that Fulham have explored a deal for Amrabat. The deal under discussion is understood to be €30m (£25.6m).

The news comes after Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso said on Thursday evening that other clubs have entered the race for Amrabat.

Commisso told Sky Italy: "There are other clubs for Amrabat too. I cannot give an answer right now, because not even I know what will happen tomorrow.

"We told Amrabat that if he has an opportunity to leave, then we'll let him go. If this deal cannot be done, then he has two years left on his contract and will remain.

"There are many negotiations in progress. I don't want to name names. So wait 24 hours and then you'll know what happens."

Amrabat's focus remains on joining United, with talks between United and Fiorentina continuing.

Meanwhile, Lorient remain in talks with United over the signing of midfielder Donny van de Beek. A number of other clubs are interested in the Dutchman.

On Thursday, the French club bolstered their midfield with the free signing of former Chelsea player Tiemoue Bakayoko, who left Stamford Bridge on a free transfer this summer.
