David Moyes has warned potential suitors off making a move for Javier Hernandez with the Manchester United striker continuing to be linked with a switch away.
The Mexico international has struggled to force his way into the side since the appointment of David Moyes, and there are suggestions he will angle for a move away in search of more regular football.
Mexico team-mate Carlos Vela recently suggested Hernandez should consider leaving the club he has been at since 2010, stating: "If he doesn’t play regularly he will need to think about leaving." When the Vela article was retweeted by Hernandez's official Twitter feed, speculation only increased.
Yet ahead of Manchester United's Champions League game against Real Sociedad, Moyes said there is a future for the 25-year-old at Old Trafford.
"We need Javier Hernandez; he's very good for us," Moyes said.
"He's scored a lot of goals over the last few years and continues to do so, so we'll continue to use him."
Tottenham are among the sides reportedly interested in the services of the striker, who has started just one Premier League game this season.
