The 20-year-old was handed a place in the final five match-day squads of the 2016/17 season as Jose Mourinho rested key players for the Europa League and made his senior debut against Arsenal before playing a full 90 minutes against Crystal Palace.
He continued to impress during Man United’s pre-season tour of the United States over the summer and was singled out for praise by assistant coach Rui Faria following an impressive cameo against Valerenga in which he scored his first senior goal.
And according to the Daily Record, Wolves have pin-pointed McTominay as a primary midfield option after losing out on Newcastle’s Jack Colback.
It is thought that Mourinho wants to hand McTominay a place in the first team this season but doubt looms over how many minutes will come his way – especially with massive competition for places in midfield at Old Trafford.
A loan move to the Championship makes perfect sense. The Scot demonstrated emphatically over pre-season – and against Palace – a readiness to compete at a good level and will undoubtedly benefit from receiving regular game time over the next nine months.
