Derby County manager Wayne Rooney has suggested to The Athletic reporter Ryan Conway there is an agreement for Teden Mengi to stay on loan beyond the season.
The versatile defender made his first-team debut at Wycombe Wanderers at right-back, before starring in the middle of a three-man defense in the draw at Barnsley.

And speaking to reporters after Derby’s victory over Luton Town, Rooney explains how he wants Mengi back at Pride Park for next season and it’s down to the defender.
Rooney doubling down on wanting Mengi back: “I’d very much like him back next season.”
Sounds like Derby and United have a handshake agreement on it: “It’s on the player now.” Rooney adds.

The 18-year-old had only featured for United’s first-team sparingly, with the majority of his appearances coming at U23 level therefore a loan out made sense.
