Zinchenko, who spent the 2016-17 season on loan at PSV Eindhoven, admitted he is reluctant to leave the Etihad after winning 14-caps for the Citizens last season.

However, the Ukrainian was not considered good enough to make the bench for both the Community Shield and the season opener at Arsenal and will only have a bit-part role this campaign.

The report further suggests Manchester City eggheads believe Zinchenko stand to gain more by playing more regularly on loan.
