Wolverhampton Wanderers are close to signing Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay on loan, according to journalist Tim Spiers.
The talented young player featured for the Red Devils during pre-season, scoring his first goal for the club on the tour.
After Manchester United’s flying start to the 2017/18 campaign, it has become increasingly unlikely that young McTominay would feature in the first-team, so a loan makes sense. A club like Wolves – who are on the up – should be a great place for him to develop.
Scott McTominay has the potential to light up the Championship this season and will be looking to use Wolves as an opportunity to impress Jose Mourinho in the hope that he can eventually become a first team regular at Old Trafford.
His main position is attacking midfield, but he can also play striker or further back in central midfield.
The 20-year-old’s move to Wolves will be a season-long loan, but there are uncertainties as to whether Manchester United have the option to recall.
He played for the Manchester United senior team twice in the 2016/7 season alongside other young players, including Preston North End’s Josh Harrop.
McTominay is 6 foot 4 inches and is a ‘powerful’ presence on the field – something Wolves fans will undoubtedly be excited about. He will not be the first Manchester United player to join Wolverhampton Wanderers on loan; full back Cameron Borthwick-Jackson joined them last season. CBJ is currently having a loan spell at Leeds United.
Wolves have just over 24 hours to get the deal over the line.
