Luke Shaw has no plans of leaving Manchester United in January and the left-back is working hard in order to get back into Jose Mourinho's side, sources have told IBTimes UK.

The England international suffered an injury setback in April, which saw him miss the pre-season and the start of this campaign. This has hampered his progress under the former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager.

He is yet to make a start for the 20-time English champions in the 2017/18 season. The left-back has two appearances to his name and both of them came off the bench in their Carabao Cup victories over Burton Albion and Swansea City.

Mourinho admitted in September that Shaw "has to improve" in order to make his way into the starting XI. However, the ex-Southampton man is yet to make a start in all competitions and has been included in the match-day squad for only three matches this term.

Lack of playing time saw the full-back being linked with a move away from Old Trafford. According to the Times, Turkish club Fenerbahce have expressed their interest in signing the defender in the January transfer window.

The Times report also claims Shaw's employers are ready to offload him on a permanent transfer. United will reportedly allow the English full-back to leave if the potential buyer is willing to pay them £20m ($26.3m).

A report from the Telegraph suggests Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City are also looking at the option of signing Shaw, if United are looking to sanction his sale.

However, IBTimes UK understands Shaw is not looking for a move away from his current employers at the turn of the year. He remains hopeful of impressing Mourinho in the training sessions and getting a chance to shine at United.

Shaw's current deal at Old Trafford runs down after the end of the season. He has an option to extend it by a further year. Mourinho has used Ashley Young, Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian in the left-back position this term.

Should Shaw manage to impress Mourinho, he can be a valuable asset in that position, especially during the busy festive fixtures and in the second half of the campaign.
