Paul Parker rubbishes McTominay to Newcastle transfer rumors

The Scottish midfielder has been linked with a move away from Man United to Newcastle United this January. However, the Red Devils legend Parker labels the player's agent a liar rubbishing the transfer rumors.

In search for a new midfielder, Eddie Howe's side has been linked with a move for

Scott McTominay

this January with his agent finding the transfer likely. However,

Paul Parker



never was interested in a move for the midfielder.


I have read some stupid rumours about McTominay moving to Newcastle, which I think is a lie. That story was made up by his agent who is a liar,"

The former United and England full-back has told Portuguese outlet



"Newcastle would never want McTominay. He wouldn't be a reinforcement for their midfield, they need better players. They already have Sean Longstaff who is a bit like McTominay and they don't need more players with that kind of abilities."

Parker continued to criticize McTominay for not being able to be a backup option to Casemiro.


I would say that Man United needs a backup for Casemiro,"

he added.

"Erik ten Hag cannot rely on Scott McTominay as the cover for Casemiro, he needs stronger competition in the midfield. Also, it is too fragile to only have one good defensive midfielder. If he gets injured Man United will be in major trouble, we saw that against Arsenal."
