Chris Sutton’s response when asked about Patrick Roberts’ future

Chris Sutton - Celtic dejected

Patrick Roberts is currently on loan at Celtic from Manchester City.

Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has suggested on social networking site Twitter that Patrick Roberts could be loaned out again by Manchester City.

Roberts is on loan at Scottish Premiership giants Celtic at the moment, having moved to the Bhoys back in February 2016.


The 19-year-old winger will remain at Celtic Park until the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

Sutton believes that Premier League giants City will loan out the England Under-20 international again in the summer of 2017.

Celtic's Patrick Roberts shoots

Roberts is a very talented and promising young winger, but the 19-year-old will find it very hard to break into the City first team next season.

Although Pep Guardiola has a history of giving young players chances, the youngster will have to work extremely hard in pre-season to impress the City manager.

City have some world-class attacking players, and it is hard to see Roberts competing with them at the moment.

The former Fulham winger needs to play regularly to progress and development, and it would make sense for him to play on loan at a different club next season.
