United are open to recalling certain players on loan in the January transfer window, says the Manchester Evening News.
Although United are mindful of facilitating a player's development, senior sources say the needs of the first-team take precedence amid possible squad adjustments in the New Year.
Right-back Laird, 21, is midway through a season-long loan at Queens Park Rangers, where he has started the 17 Championship matches he has been available for under manager Michael Beale. However, Beale is expected to be appointed the new manager of Rangers.
Wan-Bissaka has not started for United since April and his solitary appearance this term was as a late substitute in the win against Liverpool on August 22.
Should the unwanted Wan-Bissaka secure a transfer in January then United would consider recalling Laird to support first-choice right-back Diogo Dalot.
