Manchester City youngster George Glendon is in talks to join Fleetwood Town, 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, has yet to make his first-team for the club.

The former England youth international, who is the son of former City midfielder Kevin Glendon, was a regular in the Elite Development Squad last season and has captained the club's under-21s.

Glendon had a trial period up at Scottish giants Rangers last November, but a move to Ibrox failed to materialise.

He is well down the pecking order at the Etihad Stadium and unlikely to break into City's star-studded first-team under Pep Guardiola.

A number of Football League clubs are understood to have shown an interest in Glendon, but Fleetwood are in pole position to land the midfielder.

New Fleetwood boss Uwe Rosler is desperate to bolster his midfield options and is understood to be a big admirer of the youngster.

Glendon is keen on regular first-team football to continue his development and Fleetwood are hopeful of bringing the player to Highbury.
