Pep Guardiola will have a new leader next season in his squad.
The 20-year-old has joined Burnley on a season-long loan this summer and has worn the captain’s armband for the England U21s.
Taylor Harwood-Bellis was praised by Under-21s manager Lee Carsley who applauds his leadership qualities.
The Englishman has started every game for Vincent Kompany’s Burnley this season.
“I thought Taylor was good tonight,” the former Birmingham City man explained. “He was good in Italy as well.
“Like a lot of these young players, he has grown into being a leader. He’s getting better at that, he’s a great example in training.
“He’s a different kind of leader, in terms of he’s not a ranter and raver. When you think about, especially in the first half, some of the positions he took up and some of the balls he played, he’s very good in possession and we are very lucky to have him.”
