It’s testament to Scott McTominay that he has not one but two countries desperately trying to sway his allegiances.
And, according to The Times, the Man United youngster has come to a decision.
Despite some seduction methods by England in recent days, McTominay has opted to represent Scotland at international level.
The 21-year-old was born in Lancaster but has Scottish ancestry through his grandparents.
He has yet to represent either country at youth level but has trained with Scottish youth sides in the past.
McTominay has emerged as a a surprise key player for United in recent months, earning the trust of Jose Mourinho after breaking into the first team.
At times he’s even kept club-record signing Paul Pogba out of the line up.
And Mourinho fuelled the fire of the international allegiance debate last month when he said Scotland should pick McTominay “because it looks like England is missing him”.
McTominay met with representatives from both English and Scottish camps this week to discuss his future, and it appears he’s been more convinced by the latter.
