Newcastle United are weighing up a move to sign Scott McTominay, with the player at least entertaining the idea.

By now, Erik ten Hag will have a clearer picture of the current Manchester United dressing room.

The gaffer will know who is good enough – and who isn’t. The likes of Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof could be on their way out this summer, while others will undoubtedly follow.

Another man who has seen his minutes drastically reduce with the new manager in charge is Scott McTominay. The Lancaster-born midfielder has been largely out of the fray this term, leading the player to consider his future at the club.

It’s The Telegraph with the latest information on McTominay. They say that Newcastle United are ‘looking into’ the signing, while the 26-year-old United star is ‘open’ to the move to the Reds’ Premier League rival.

Apparently, Eddie Howe feels McTominay has the ‘physical’ attributes to fit into his system, with McTominay enduring a frustrating season under Ten Hag.

That has encouraged Newcastle to ‘firm up’ their interest in McTominay, following a tentative approach for the player in the January transfer window.

To us, McTominay is a squad player at best. There can be no doubt that he has some strengths as a midfielder, though there’s also glaring weaknesses to his game, too.

As someone you’d bring on to help see out a game, or fill in when one or two regulars are injured, McTominay is good enough. However, stylistically, I’m not sure he’s the ideal fit for the way Ten Hag likes to play.

If the right offer does come in, I can absolutely see why United would be open to a McTominay sale during the summer.
