Former Premier League midfielder Danny Murphy has described Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay as a perfect and super athletic midfielder who is good at spotting danger.

McTominay has seen his game time at Manchester United reduce this season following the arrival of Casemiro and Murphy has urged the midfielder to leave for Newcastle United.

Newcastle United are believed to be interested in signing McTominay this summer.

“I like Scott McTominay a lot,” Murphy told talkSPORT on Wednesday. “I think he gets unfair criticism at times.

“The way Eddie Howe and Newcastle play, he’s perfect. Super athletic, box-to-box. A really hard worker, good at spotting danger and decent with the ball.

“You could argue they have got Sean Longstaff, who kind of fits that role, but you’re talking about a club that hopes to be in the Champions League.

“That means you are playing high-quality games midweek and on the weekend and they need competition for places.

“They need more numbers in midfield, they have shown that recently when they have had injuries. I think McTominay would be a super signing for them.”
