    • Found an interview where he said he never trained with the first team while at Man. City. A supporters’ site also mentioned he’s a likely buy and then sell for a profit player as has been Man City’s way in the past few years, but he could impress enough to stay.

      • Isn’t he on loan at KVK in Belgium, I thought he might see some mins or at least make the bench

      • Yes, but I don’t believe he joined MC until January and then went to KVK at the end of February so he’s still in preseason form. It’s not like say Carter-Vickers who was playing consistently for Sheffield then went back to Spurs for a few days and then went to Ipswich. EPB was off for the months of Nov and Dec.

  1. Romain Gall scored and set up another in the Swedish Cup for Sundsvall in a win. Mix set up the goal for Goteborg who also won their Cup match. Both squads were playing 2nd division sides.
