Manchester United

Solskjaer eager for McTominay stay

17th April 2019, 10:52 by Alex Jack

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has shelved any plans of allowing Scott McTominay to be loaned out to another outfit next season.

A number of Premier League outfits have previously enquired after the promising Manchester United midfielder, who has found himself a regular starter since Solskjaer's arrival in late December.

There was a feeling the Lancaster-born Scotland international could be farmed out next term to provide him with even more top-flight experience, once United's summer transfer business is concluded.

However, McTominay has already shown enough for Solskjaer to consider a rethink and the Norwegian has made it clear to the academy graduate that he is firmly in his plans for next year.

The 22-year-old could have joined promotion chasers Leeds United last summer but the Red Devils' former manager Jose Mourinho was impressed by the attitude he had shown in pre-season.

Solskjaer is also a fan and sees McTominay filling the void which is expected to be left by the departures of United's Spanish midfield duo Juan Mata and Ander Herrera in the coming weeks.
