What West Ham will actually have to pay for Scott McTominay after rejected £30 million bid

The Hammers have lodged a £30 million bid for the Scotland international, but Man United are holding out for close to £45 million, according to Sky Sports.

I actually think that the 26-year-old will be a superb addition for West Ham this summer.

The Man United midfielder is incredibly strong in the tackle, quick along the ground and possesses bundles of energy and athleticism.

And if Scott McTominay joins West Ham for around £35 million I think that will be good business.
