Despite making a huge impression on loan at Huddersfield Town and being selected in the EFL team of the year, Australian midfielder Aaron Mooy is expected to be sold by Manchester City in the summer, according to The Sun on Sunday.

26-year-old Mooy was signed from partner club Melbourne City last summer and was immediately loaned out to Huddersfield, where he has surpassed everyone’s expectations.

Sunderland are one club thought to be keen on the Socceroo, but Middlesbrough caretaker manager Steve Agnew made a personal check on him during Huddersfield’s 3-2 win over Preston on Friday, a game in which Mooy impressed yet again and managed an assist.

City rejected a bid in the region of £10 million for Mooy in January and can expect to make a massive profit on the pass master if they cash in during the close season. There has been some talk that Mooy, who counts as a home-grown player, could be brought into the fold by Pep Guardiola, but if reports are to be believed, City will sell him.

With four goals and six assists in the Championship, Mooy has proven himself to be a player capable of succeeding in England and should be able to make the step up to the Premier League without any problems.

For a limited time, you can get your hands on a Manchester City official shirt from just £30 for adults and £22.50 for children.

Make sure you grab one!
