Newcastle have held talks over Man United star but transfer may have to wait

Newcastle United have reportedly had some conversations about a potential transfer deal for Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay this January.

However, even though there could be some value to Man Utd in letting McTominay go, they’re keen to hold onto him until the summer transfer window, according to The Athletic.

Newcastle would do well to bring in the Scotland international, with the report stating that Eddie Howe is an admirer of the player and could make him a key part of his Magpies side.

One imagines McTominay will also be thinking about leaving Old Trafford in order to play more regularly, though Ben Jacobs recently wrote in his exclusive CaughtOffside column that Erik ten Hag was keen to keep him.
