From Fabrizio Romano: Manchester City subject to triple approach for first-team forward



| Last Updated:


Manchester City have been subject to a triple approach for breakthrough first-team forward Micah Hamilton in recent days, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Hamilton has progressed through Manchester City’s various age-groups since first joining the club as an Under-9, and recently made his senior first-team debut in the UEFA Champions League, scoring his first goal for the club in the process.

Representing England at various youth levels in the process, Micah Hamilton featuring for City’s Under-18s and EDS in both the U18 Premier League and Premier League 2 respectively, progressing through to EDS-only football for the 2023/24 campaign. 

However, Hamilton’s immense rise within Pep Guardiola’s set-up has seen him attract significant interest from the Championship over the possibility of a temporary move away from the Etihad Stadium for the second-half of the ongoing season.

That is according to the information of transfer insider Fabrizio Romano, who reports that Watford have become the third Championship club to have approached Manchester City in recent days over the signing of Micah Hamilton on loan.

It is further revealed that two other clubs from within the Championship have also asked Manchester City for a loan agreement this month.

Unfortunately for the 20-year-old’s potential suitors from within England’s second-tier of football, the Premier League champions reportedly have no plans to let Hamilton leave the club this month and want the breakthrough forward to stay with Pep Guardiola’s first-team.

Hamilton is one of a number of Manchester City academy players to have excelled into the first-team squad this season, joined by now-Norway international Oscar Bobb and Spanish midfielder Mahamadou Susoho.

It remains to be seen just how many opportunities Hamilton receives between now and the end of the season, however there is a feeling within the City Football Academy that the experiences alone from being within the first-team group on a daily basis are invaluable.
