Manchester City are set to loan England under-20 international Isaac Buckley-Ricketts out to League One side Oxford United, HITC reports.
The 19-year-old winger is highly thought of at the Etihad, but a loan spell to the Eredivisie hasn’t panned out, with FC Twente giving him just 6 league appearances in the first half of the season – none of them starts.
City have reportedly called Buckley-Ricketts back from the Netherlands and are now poised to loan him to Pep Clotet’s Oxford, who sit 10th in the third tier of English football.
Dropping down to this level should ensure that the skillful starlet gets plenty of minutes in the second half of the season.
Buckley-Ricketts was part of the England under-19 squad that won the European Championships for the first time ever last summer.
