Manchester City forward could leave the club in January

According to recent reports, Manchester City are open to letting young forward prospect, Liam Delap, leave on a loan in the January transfer window.

Liam Delap joined City in 2019 from Derby County and since then has proved to be quite a player in the youth settings. The youngster scored a total of 24 goals in just 20 appearances for Manchester City’s under-23 side.

He was then handed his first-team debut in a game against Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup and the then 17-year-old celebrated it by scoring the first goal of the game.

The youngster was linked with a long move in the summer transfer window but after Manchester City failed to sign a striker, Pep Guardiola decided to keep him at the club.

He even signed a contract extension for three years at the club this summer.

However, according to recent information, the club is now open to letting him leave for a loan move during the January transfer window.

The report suggests that the Premier League champions currently plan on involving Delap in the first-team squad in the first weeks and months of the campaign, but he will not stay at the club for the entirety of this season.

Many championship sides are said to be interested in signing the young talent on loan, including Stoke City, Middlesborough and Millwall. Wherever Delap decides to go, we know that the youngster will end up performing really well.

Do you think letting Delap go on a loan can mean Manchester City are looking to bring a new striker in January? If not, do you think letting Delap go on loan in the middle of the season is a good idea for the club?
