One month ago The Mirror reported that Leeds United are potentially keen on a loan move for Manchester United's Scott McTominay.

Red Devils' boss Jose Mourinho's actions over the last four weeks are only going to help the Whites.

 

McTominay has not played a single minute since early October, when Mourinho reportedly decided he would make McTominay available for loan.

His last game was the 3-2 home win over Newcastle in which he was hauled off at half-time with United 2-0 down.

He has played only 118 minutes in the Premier League this season.

Since the Newcastle game, McTominay has only made the substitute's bench once and been omitted from the matchday squad four times, including in midweek.

If Leeds are serious about landing the Scottish youngster on loan, then everything is heading in the right direction.

The Championship leaders would be a great club for McTominay to sign for and develop as a player, learning from manager Marcelo Bielsa.

Leeds will have a list of possible options, but McTominay is currently looking like one of their most easily attainable loan targets.
