Manchester City recall 20-year-old midfield talent from loan deal amid interest from Premier League clubs



| Last Updated:


Interest from across the Premier League stands alongside Manchester City’s decision to recall 20-year-old midfield prospect Kian Breckin from his season-long loan agreement.

The Manchester-born midfielder, who successfully progressed through City’s Academy age-groups since first joining the club in 2015, was sent on loan into League One for the ongoing 2023/24 season for the purpose of development and game-time at senior level.

Described by the club as being a player who is ‘comfortable at receiving the ball in tight areas’, Breckin played a key role in both the 2020/21 and 2021/22 Under-18 Premier League title winning seasons, and a step in the Football League was viewed as the next natural step.

However, following a hugely challenging season across all competitions for Wycombe Wanderers and registering just nine appearances across the EFL Trophy, League One, EFL Cup, and FA Cup, a significant step has been taken by his parent club.

That is according to the information of Manchester City insider ‘Tolmie’s Hairdoo’, who reveals that the Premier League champions have now recalled Kian Breckin from his loan agreement with Wycombe Wanderers, having been left unimpressed by a lack of opportunities.

The source details that Club insiders have heard the player has also been ‘treated poorly’ at the League One club, and is now being offered out on loan to teams nearer to Manchester City.

It has been further revealed that Premier League side Brentford have shown a ‘keen interest’ in Breckin, while Fulham are also described as being ‘big admirers’ in the player. From the perspective of Manchester City, the Treble winners want to ensure he gets game time.

The ongoing January transfer window is likely to be one that sees the loaning of youth academy talents taking centre stage, with Manchester City looking for openings for their primary starlets across the second-half of the season.

Micah Hamilton is one name that has recently broken into the first-team limelight following his UEFA Champions League goal against Crvena zvezda, however it remains unknown as to whether Manchester City would prefer to continue the player’s development at the Etihad.
