Exclusive: Stoke City and Derby County on alert as Man City weigh up Championship destination for forward

Published

Stoke City, Derby County and AFC Bournemouth are possible destinations for Liam Delap next season as Manchester City weigh up a loan move for the forward, Football League World understand. 

Delap continues to pull up trees in the youth set-up at City, scoring 16 goals in just 13 appearances in the Premier League 2 season.

The 18-year-old has also been involved in the League Cup this season, scoring his first senior goal for City in a 2-1 win over Bournemouth back in the early stage of that competition. A Premier League debut followed in a defeat to Leicester City days later, with Delap getting a third taste of Pep Guardiola’s side in the FA Cup earlier in 2021.

Now, the Premier League leaders are considering sending Delap on loan into the Championship ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

Sources have told Football League World that a loan is very likely but City are keen to source the right club to truly aid the development of their towering young striker.

Whilst it is too early to confirm exactly where Delap will end up when he’s on the move in the summer, Football League World are told that a host of Championship clubs are on alert and would be willing to take the teenager on board.

Stoke and Derby are two clubs that are in contention, whilst play-off hopefuls, Bournemouth, could also be a landing spot for the Manchester City youngster.
