​Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly lining up possible for January signings, after being assured that his job is safe by club CEO Ed Woodward. 

United have been on a horrendous run of form and are currently languishing in tenth place in the Premier League table.  

The Red Devils slumped to their fourth Premier League defeat of the season on Saturday, going down 1-0 away at Eddie Howe's ​Bournemouth, having already lost to ​Newcastle​West Ham and ​Crystal Palace this campaign.

Because of this, the Norwegian's future as United manager had been under significant scrutiny. However, ​ESPN claim that the club's executive vice-chairman and CEO, Ed Woodward, has assured Solskjaer that he remains secure in his position.

With his future seemingly assured, the 46-year-old is apparently keen for his side to put the disappointing result against the Cherries behind them and try and push for a top-four finish. 

When asked about United's performance at the Vitality Stadium, Solskjaer refused to criticise his players.

"It was always gonna be a difficult game down here and it wasn't gonna be a game with loads of goals in it, because there's two good defensive teams. The first goal was always gonna be very important in this type of game," the Norwegian began, as reported by the Daily Express.

"We started well, opened them up quite a bit first 15 or 20 minutes, but we couldn't get the goal and it didn't become a fantastic game of football.

"But we've gotta praise their goal, it's won by a moment of magic by Josh [King].

"I think at least we went for it, we didn't stop trying but the lack of quality couldn't give us a point or three."

United look to get back to winning ways on Thursday when they face Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League, knowing that a win would all but confirm their progression into the last 32 of the competition.
