Are Leeds frontrunners to secure Premier League starlet?

It is rumoured that Leeds are one of many clubs interested in taking Manchester United youngster Scott McTominay on loan.

Having already secured the loan signing of his teammate, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, at the start of the season the Whites are supposedly interested in taking McTominay on for the remainder of the campaign, according to the Sun.

Although the 21-year-old started in the Red Devils recent 1-0 win over Bournemouth, the report suggests that the starlet is keen on gaining some more first team opportunities and is willing to go out on loan to secure them.

Leeds head coach Thomas Christiansen currently has three recognised centre-midfielder’s in Kalvin Phillips, Ronaldo Vieira and Eunan O’Kane, whilst Mateusz Klich appears to be out of the first team picture.
McTominay would certainly bring something different to the table as a towering presence who is more than capable of carrying the ball out from the back.

However, the West Yorkshiremen may benefit from a more experienced midfielder as oppose to Manchester United’s young star who has only made a handful of appearances in Jose Mourinho’s side.

But if Leeds choose to battle for McTominay, they will have to compete with Championship rivals Preston North End and Bolton Wanderers for his services.
