Derby County have enjoyed a solid start to the new season, and lie in eighth place following the first four rounds of league fixtures.
The Pride Park side have experienced a difficult transfer window, losing both Tom Ince and Will Hughes to the Premier League this summer, with both players integral to Gary Rowett’s side last year.
The former Birmingham boss has moved to replace the departed with former Ram, Tom Huddlestone, as well as impressive Leicester youngster, Tom Lawrence, but further midfield reinforcements may be needed if Derby are to launch a serious bid for promotion.
Rowett will have options lined up, but perhaps should consider an ambitious loan move for Manchester United youngster, Scott McTominay, who appears to have an extremely bright future at Old Trafford having been taken on the club’s pre season tour of America by manager, Jose Mourinho.
The 20-year-old has been with the Premier League giants since the age of 5, but moving away from the club for the first time could mark an excellent opportunity for the youngster to continue his progression.
Training with the United first team on a regular basis will have massively accelerated his growth as a player, but regular competitive action in the Championship will see the player develop even further.
McTominay is an imposing figure, standing at an impressive 6ft 4 in, and his power in the middle of the park would be a welcome addition to the Derby squad.
Mourinho may be keen to keep the youngster at Old Trafford this season, but if the Portuguese boss can be convinced by Rowett that his development will accelerate at Pride Park, then Derby could have a sensational young player on their hands this year.
Would you be happy to see McTominay at Pride Park this season, Rams fans?
