Man United make u-turn over 22-year-old star’s future

By | January 19, 2019

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is willing to keep hold of Scott McTominay following an injury to Marouane Fellaini which will keep the Belgium international out for ‘three or four weeks’.

Manchester United had been opened talks with Celtic over a loan deal for Scott McTominay, and the 22-year-old ace was open to the move after making only three Premier League starts this term.

But Marouane Fellaini’s calf problem has altered the Red Devils plans, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made clear his stance on the youngster situation ahead of the side’s clash with Brighton.

The Norwegian played down the Scottish giants’ chances of landing Scott McTominay on loan and admitted that the starlet is in discussions over a new deal at the club while the current contract runs up until the summer of 2021.

‘Scott is working hard,’ caretaker responded when asked about McTominay. ‘He’s a young boy I still believe in. We’re working on his contract, with the injuries of Fellaini as well and the squad we have I’m not sure we’re going to see any movement.”

Asked whether he expected any additions before the transfer window closes, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer responded: ‘No, not really.’
