Midfielder Donny van de Beek has barely featured in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's starting XI since joining last summer.

Donny van de Beek has been urged to stay and fight for his place at Manchester United despite his lack of game time this season.

The Dutch midfield maestro, who joined the Red Devils from Ajax last summer for £40milllion, has started just two games in the Premier League, with critics asking why the English giants sealed his services.

Although, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to say that the 24-year-old still has a future with the 20-time champions despite reports linking him with a move away from the club this summer.

All in all, Ajax's director of football, Marc Overmars says Van de Beek must not give up.

"I think Donny should just fight, stay next year and try to claim a starting place," the ex-Arsenal winger told NOS. "You shouldn’t leave so quickly."

Ajax's chief executive and ex-United keeper Edwin van der Saar told ESPN’s Good Morning Eredivisie about Van de Beek's situation at United: "Of course I feel sad for Donny.

"He walked the perfect path before joining United.

"But the midfield of Manchester United is too stacked, they’ve not had any injuries. It’s hard for him."
