Potential consequences: Leeds United swoop for Scott McTominay

Leeds and Marcelo Bielsa are having a blast together and the hope remains that the Lilywhites can fire themselves back into the Premier League.

When starting the season, many thought they would run away with promotion but the Championship is a tricky league, as the last weeks have proven.

Having seen the recent struggles, Marcelo Bielsa is already turning his attention to the January transfer window.

The Sun are reporting that Leeds, along with Aston Villa, are extremely interested in taking Manchester United’s Scott McTominay on-loan from January until the end of the season.

This move would be in order to spur the team to gain promotion and with a youngster of his ability, that could become a serious possibility.

What could this move mean for Leeds long-term…

Kalvin Phillips could thrive with a talented partner

The 22-year-old has played in every single game for Leeds this season and remains a massive part in everything good that they do.

As he had adopted a more defensive role in recent games, Scott McTominay could arrive and play a more forward role, with Kalvin Phillips eagerly waiting to sweep away danger.

With Premier League, Scott McTominay has a noticeable dose of quality that could mean his spell with Leeds is a successful one.

Bielsa lands yet another big coup

The Argentinian coach has proven his quality with Leeds during his short spell with the club so far and with another strong addition in the transfer window, Bielsa’s management could even be made easier as the players have the quality already.

While McTominay isn’t the most talented player to ever come through the United ranks, he’s clearly got quality, and who knows what Bielsa could do with that.
