Leeds, Aston Villa buoyed as Man Utd seek loan for McTominay

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is deciding whether to place young midfielder Scott McTominay out on loan.

The youngster has played for United's first team this season. But he was poor in the 3-2 win over Newcastle, struggling to find his place in midfield or in defense.

And it appears the 21-year-old could go out on loan, per The Sun.

Leeds and Aston Villa are possible January destinations, as they would give him the chance to get regular first team football in the Championship.

An Old Trafford source said to The Sun: "Scott is wanted by a number of clubs and there are offers on the table already.

"The club are not totally against the idea of him going. There was a lot of interest in him in the summer.

"Jose is a big fan of his despite what might be perceived with his comments about his confidence being knocked.

"He still have a future here but the thought is more football could help toughen him up and get him away from the spotlight."
