Manchester City midfielder George Glendon is a target for a number of Football League clubs on loan when the transfer window reopens in January, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.
Glendon, who has come through the ranks at City and has been with the club since the age of five, is highly-regarded within in the corridors of power at the Etihad Stadium.
The 20-year-old is captain of the club's Elite Development Squad and has been on the fringes of the first-team, but is yet to make his full debut for the club.
The former England youth international, who is the son of former City midfielder Kevin Glendon, featured in City's pre-season tour of Australia and the club hope he can make the step up to the first-team.
Glendon is set to follow in the footsteps of team-mate George Evans by going out on loan to get regular first-team action under his belt.
Evans is currently impressing out on loan at Walsall and City feel Glendon would be best served by treading a similar path to gain valuable experience before returning to City to push for a spot in Manuel Pellegrini's side.
A host of League One clubs have enquired about signing Glendon on loan in January and City will decide in the New Year where to send the talented midfielder.
