Defender for Manchester City have three clubs interested in signing him this month, Finley Burns is the centre of interest in the Championship’s transfer activity
The 19-year-old defender has participated in every game for Manchester City’s academy teams this season, making 19 appearances in the Premier League 2, UEFA Youth League, and EFL Trophy.
Along with several of his youth teammates, Burns earned his senior Manchester City debut under Pep Guardiola last year during a 6-1 Carabao Cup victory over Wycombe Wanderers at the Etihad Stadium.
After reaching that professional milestone, he moved on loan to Swansea City for the second half of the season, where he made three appearances for manager Russell Martin. In a move identical to the one sanctioned by the Premier League winners during the most recent January transfer window, it now appears that Manchester City are interested in the possibility of Burns moving to the second tier of English football to complete his development.
Following the conclusion of two loan agreements to Coventry during the previous summer’s transfer window, and most recently this week, city officials do have a relationship with the latter.
Josh Wilson-Esbrand signed a loan agreement with Coventry City that will last until the conclusion of the current campaign, showing once again how much Manchester City trusts the Championship team to help one of their most potential academy players develop.
