‘He’s average’ – Simon Jordan warns Premier League club against signing Manchester United star

Simon Jordan has described Scott McTominay as an average player and has warned Newcastle United against signing the Manchester United midfielder.

Under Erik ten Hag, McTominay probably hasn’t featured as much as he would like, and Newcastle United are reportedly interested in signing the midfielder who is valued at around £40million by Manchester United.

“McTominay taking Newcastle to the next level? Well, what is the next level?,” Jordan said on talkSPORT.

“(Newcastle) are competing with Manchester United. Very, very rarely do we see, at the top of the table, clubs selling players to one another. It happens now and again; (Dimitar) Berbatov and (Robin) Van Persie.

“But, in this instance, I am looking at it and saying ‘what is the next level?’ If Newcastle are competing for a Champions League space, they are going to be competing with Man United.

“So, for Newcastle to take a player from Man United – who Man United will only sell if they don’t think is good enough to be in their side – seems to be at odds with what (Newcastle) are trying to achieve.”
