Manchester midfielder Tommy Doyle has attracted the interest of a whole host of second-tier clubs this summer.
The latest update from Football Insider has provided those Championship clubs with hope, as City are willing to let the teenager leave on loan.
A Football League World exclusive from early July stated that no fewer than 10 Championship clubs were reported to be in pursuit of the 19-year-old.
According to the report, Sheffield United, West Brom, Fulham, Swansea City, AFC Bournemouth, Middlesbrough, QPR, Cardiff City, Coventry City and Blackburn Rovers, have expressed an interest in the teenager.
However, it remains to be seen if the situations at these 10 clubs have changed in the six weeks since that report first surfaced.
The central midfielder, who has also been tasked with operating as a centre-back, featured 18 times in Premier League 2 last season, scoring four times and assisting a further ten.
Doyle made his debut at senior level during a 3-1 victory in the EFL Cup against Southampton in late 2019, before being handed his first Premier League appearance in July 2020.
Some of the Championship clubs in pursuit have bolstered their midfield options since interest first emerged in mid July, meaning that a move is less likely for certain clubs
Doyle is an option who poses an attacking threat but also has the versatility to fill in wherever is required – an increasingly important component of being a youthful player trying to break in at first team level.
It remains to be seen if any other club join the race for the exciting midfield prospect, but this latest update will come as a brilliant boost for those who have kept a watchful eye over his progression.
