As reported by The Sun, Bolton Wanderers are one of a number of clubs interested in a loan deal for Manchester United starlet Scott McTominay.

The article from The Sun states:

"MANCHESTER UNITED starlet Scott McTominay is wanted by a host of Championship clubs on loan next month. The 21-year-old is regarded as one of United’s brightest young talents and Jose Mourinho is a huge fan of his ability.

He has been training with the first-team for much of the campaign, and has made a handful of appearances in the Champions League and Carabao Cup. It is thought the Red Devils would like him to get some regular time of the pitch, putting Leeds United, Preston and Bolton on alert."

A product of the Manchester United Academy, 21 year old centre midfielder Scott McTominay has played seven times for United, five of which have been this season.

Five Championship clubs have reportedly enquired about McTominay, so Wanderers face some competition to sign him.

McTominay might not even be available, as the club may keep him in and around the first team due to fitness concerns about Michael Carrick.

Would Scott McTominay be a good signing for Wanderers? Let us know in the comments box below.
