Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal will wait until December before deciding whether to send James Wilson out on loan.
Van Gaal said earlier this month that he planned to send the 19-year-old out on a temporary basis so the player could get some experience, but he remains on United's books.
The teenager was not in the squad for Wednesday's 3-0 win over Ipswich in the Capital One Cup, but there is no loan move pending for the striker, Van Gaal confirmed.
The United boss said he has "doubts" about whether it would be worthwhile loaning the player to a Championship club, and for that reason he will wait for two months before making a decision on the player.
"I have talked with him and I think we wait until December," the United boss told a press conference on Friday.
Barcelona forward Neymar has revealed he held talks about a possible move to Manchester United this summer.
United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward flew to Barcelona earlier in August.
At the time it was widely believed he had flown to Catalonia to try to tie up a deal for Pedro, who eventually joined Chelsea, but it has since emerged he had launched an audacious bid to sign Neymar.
When asked about United's interest, the Barca star told ESPN Brazil: "We had conversations, but there was nothing concrete.
"I heard that there were offers but none were made to me."
Neymar joined Barcelona from Santos in 2013. He scored 22 league goals in Barca's title-winning campaign last term.
He wants to keep on improving at the Nou Camp this year.
"I want to keep giving my all and evolve season to season," he said.
"I hope I will be on the Ballon d'Or podium this year."

Anthony Martial stepped off the bench and scored his fourth goal in four matches as Manchester United strolled into the fourth round of the Capital One Cup with a 3-0 win over Ipswich.
United's 4-0 defeat to MK Dons in this competition last year is regarded as the worst loss of Dutchman Louis van Gaal's tenure and there was no way he was going to let Ipswich record a similar result on Wednesday.
The United boss sent out a near full-strength side, and they spared little energy dispatching an Ipswich team that contained 11 changes.
Wayne Rooney scored his first goal in domestic competition this season, taking down Daley Blind's long pass before beating Ipswich goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski.
Andreas Pereira, making his first start, netted his maiden strike for the club - a dipping free-kick from 20 yards - before Martial raced through and prodded the ball home in injury time to continue his excellent start to life at Old Trafford.
Louis van Gaal looks set to ring the changes for Manchester United's Capital One Cup tie at home to Ipswich on Wednesday.
Andreas Pereira, James Wilson and Jesse Lingard could feature, although the latter two played 90 minutes of an Under-21 win over Everton on Monday night.
Left-back Luke Shaw (broken leg) is out, but centre-back Phil Jones has returned to training following a bout of thrombosis in his leg.
Provisional squad: De Gea, Romero, Johnstone, Varela, Rojo, Blind, McNair, Smalling, Jones, Darmian, Valencia, Carrick, Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger, Fellaini, Herrera, Mata, Depay, Goss, Young, Lingard, Rooney, Martial, Wilson.
Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas has spoken about how he cried over his failed move to Manchester United.
The Costa Rican international looked set to move to Old Trafford as part of the deal to take David De Gea back to Spain, but it collapsed at the last minute.
"I cried that night when I found out I was staying, it was a build-up of emotions. I didn't want to leave, Madrid is my home," Navas told Spanish radio station Cadena COPE.
He added: "I never wanted to leave Real Madrid. My agent told me to be alert to my phone. We had to go to Barajas, although I never actually got on a plane, I was in a waiting room.
"I thought that if God wanted me to leave Madrid, it would be for the best, but he didn't want me to and I'm still here."
