Teden Mengi has been promoted to the Manchester United first-team squad indefinitely.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has upgraded Mengi's squad number from 71 to 43 after he was included in the squad for the Europa League straight knockout phase in Cologne.

Mengi, 18, enjoyed more first-team exposure with a 30-minute outing in last week's friendly defeat at Villa Park and has been training with the senior squad again this week.

Fellow centre halves Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo have been training away from the United squad amid the possibility they could leave before transfer deadline day on October 5 while Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones are recovering from injury.

If it happens, it happens.

The Mancunian started for the Under-21s in their 6-0 thrashing of Salford in the EFL Trophy last week but Mengi was withdrawn from the Under-23 squad for Monday's 2-0 defeat to Leicester.

Mengi made his United debut in the Europa League win over LASK in August and Solskjaer last week likened him to Matthijs de Ligt at the same age.
