Manchester City midfielder sees loan move terminated by sister club

Melbourne City have terminated the loan deal of midfielder Anthony Caceres from Manchester City to free up roster space, the City Football Group’s Australian club have confirmed.

The 26-year-old was sent on loan for a second spell in Melbourne after initially being dispatched there after Manchester City signed him from Central Coast Mariners in 2016.

However, Caceres fell out of favour with coach Warren Joyce who decided his spot on Melbourne City’s roster could be better used, leading to his loan spell being cut short.

City loaned the Sydney-born player out to UAE club Al-Wasl last season before returning him to Melbourne, and must now seek another club to send one of their many lesser known players to.

A recent report by Goal revealed that Sydney FC and an unnamed Thai League heavyweight are interested in signing Caceres.

Another Man City-owned player, Luke Brattan, remains on loan at the A-League club who are led by Joyce, the former Manchester United reserves manager.

UPDATE: Less than an hour after his loan spell with Melbourne City was terminated, Manchester City have loaned Anthony Caceres to Sydney FC. [Full Story]
