Whites Have To Wait On Barker Loan

Last updated : 22 July 2015 By .

The England under-19 winger is wanted by head coach Uwe Rosler, who has closely watched Barker come through the academy ranks at his former club.

Barker is away with the City first-team squad on their pre-season tour of Australia and came on as a second-half substitute in Tuesday's penalty shoot-out victory over Roma.

City boss Manuel Pellegrini has briefly spoken with the 18-year-old, who has been compared in playing style to Bayern Munich star Arjen Robben.

City want a little more time to review all the options before making a final decision and Leeds may now have to get in line due to the mounting interest.
