Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck.

The Royals are believed to be on the lookout for reinforcements this month, with a forward player said to be a top target.

A meagre tally of only 23 goals has contributed to the club’s haul of just 13 points, which leaves them level with QPR at the foot of the table.

With Welbeck behind the likes of Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez in the pecking order at Old Trafford, it has been speculated that he may be able to leave on a temporary deal.

However, McDermott dismissed these rumours, claiming that there has been no approach made and that it is likely to remain that way:

“I can’t see Sir Alex Ferguson sending Danny out to any club. I don’t know where this has came from, it’s got nothing to do with me.” He is quoted by The Metro.

“Welbeck’s a great player and I’m sure Sir Alex Ferguson thinks he’s a great player too. Everyone in the country thinks that.”

Although he has ruled out a move for Welbeck, McDermott is hoping to add to the arrivals of Hope Akpan and Daniel Carrico, who have moved to the Madejski Stadium this month:

“We’re still looking for an experienced player and if we can find one who has played some games in the division that would be good for us,

“It’s never easy to find a player like that, but it’s definitely on the agenda.”
