Manchester United interim manager Ryan Giggs has come out and dismissed speculation that Danny Welbeck could be sold by Manchester United.

The United striker - who is a product of the club's youth academy - has scored nine goals in the Premier League this season.

The England international has been linked to both Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal but Giggs has seemingly moved to put an end to speculation that Welbeck could leave the club.

"We won't be selling him," Giggs was quoted by Sky Sports.

"We showed that the other night that bringing young players through is an important part of the club's culture and history.

"We wouldn't like to lose someone like Danny because he has done that, he has been here since eight or nine. So we want to keep him."

Welbeck was thought to be dissatisfied under former manager David Moyes due to him playing out of position and not in his preferred role as a striker. 

With Moyes now gone after departing Old Trafford last month, Welbeck - who has two years left on his contract - could now potentially agree to sign an extension to his current deal to prolong his stay with Manchester United.

The 23-year-old will also be celebrating  today, having been officially named by England boss Roy Hodgson as a member of the Three Lion' 23-man squad for this summer's World Cup in Brazil.
