Various newslines have reported United are on the point of signing Chelsea’s 21-year-old central midfielder Kyle Scott on a free transfer and on a contract of two years. Scott has barely got a run-out for Chelsea only appearing in pre-season friendlies against Milan and Arsenal under Conte two seasons ago. He came off the bench for Chelsea in a 4-0 FAC win over Hull in 2018 but that’s been his lot.

His most recent football has been turning out on loan for Telstar last season where he made 14 appearances and scored twice. He is considered as an attacking midfielder. Scott hails from the West Country (Bath) and weirdly has played youth football for both the US and England.

Its thought that Rafa was interested in this deal happening so that does add to his credibility. Its not thought he is planned for the first team but you never know with Newcastle United.
