Manchester City midfielder to leave club for Premier League side as part of €55 million deal



| Last Updated:


Tommy Doyle is expected to leave on a season-long loan as part of a transfer agreement between Manchester City and Wolves.

The 21-year-old, who helped Sheffield United return to the top-flight last season, is expected to move to Molineux for the campaign, after Manchester City verbally agreed a deal with Wolves to sign midfielder Matheus Nunes.

Doyle is set to sign for Wolves as part of the deal which will see Nunes move to the Etihad Stadium, with the Portugal international becoming Manchester City’s fourth first-team signing of the summer window.

Manchester City and Wolves have verbally agreed a €55 million transfer fee, after Nunes dramatically went on strike in an attempt to force an exit from the Midlands club, despite only moving to Wolves last summer.

The 25-year-old featured in 34 Premier League matches for Wolves last season, having signed from Sporting Lisbon for a club-record £42 million.

Tommy Doyle will move on an initial season-long loan, with the option for Wolves to sign the England U21 international permanently for £5 million next summer.

The deal to sign Doyle on a permanent basis would also include a significant sell-on clause, according to David Ornstein.

As per Fabrizio Romano, it is claimed that the ‘significant’ sell-on clause is worth 50%.

Doyle, who has made seven first-team appearances for Manchester City, featured in 38 matches for Sheffield United last season, with the Blades returning to the top-flight.

The 21-year-old was directly involved in 11 goals, and played alongside Sky Blues teammate James McAtee at Bramall Lane for the 2022/23 campaign.

Doyle has been a long-standing target at Wolves, but will be ineligible for the clash between Manchester City and the Midlands club next month, with Pep Guardiola’s side due to travel to Molineux on Saturday 30th September.
