Solskjaer was full of praise for the forward but has urged Greenwood to improve his heading ability as he looks to shape his all-round game.

'The levels in English football are getting better, that was their cup team as well so the standards are high in the Championship. They have done well and made us work hard to go through.'

'At the moment we have not had any bids up to the level we want, that is the situation at the moment,' added the Norwegian.
