Speaking about Liam Delap last season, Pep Guardiola said: "He's a special striker we don't have, a lovely guy, fighter, every training session, every time he fights and wins the duels or breaks his nose."
So this move appears as much to ease the load for City's overworked medical department as it is getting game-time into the teenager.
Leicester City have yet to sign a player in this window. Cardiff City, meanwhile, have just wrapped up their 11th!
And the bad news keeps coming for Leicester. How to announce a player is on the move without actually announcing the player is on the move.
Sheffield United have completed the signing of Jordan Henderson, I mean Ciaran Clark.
An unusual signing reveal from Arsenal and Mikel Arteta. Maybe he's the experience they have been crying out for. Good in the air too.
