Having signed a new £40,000-a-week deal recently after Pep Guardiola convinced him to stay, Manchester City youngster Tosin Adarabioyo is poised to go out on loan in search of vital first-team experience.
Tosin, 19, is very highly regarded at City and some believe he could be a future club captain, but with only four appearances for Guardiola’s side under his belt, a season out on loan is important for his development and long-term future.
And according to The Times, Premier League side Newcastle are keen on the England youth international, as are Championship trio Sheffield Wednesday, Preston North End and Fulham.
City are willing to loan Tosin out to a top-flight side or a top-half Championship team, an achievement all three of his suitors from that division managed last year.
If a suitable loan move can be found by the start of next week, Adarabioyo could miss City’s tour of the United States.
