Manchester City owned Tommy Doyle is reportedly being courted by several Championship clubs. Doyle is currently on a loan spell with the Bundesliga 2 side Hamburger SV.
Hamburg confirmed a loan deal for the promising midfielder during the closing stages of the previous summer transfer window.
Despite being a highly rated youngster, Doyle has only managed to play 73 minutes in six league games under the Hamburg manager Tim Walter. In those 73 minutes, he managed to score a late winner against SC Paderborn.
The parent club Manchester City are reportedly growing anxious about his playing time on the German side. Although the player seems to be positive about becoming a regular starter (as reported by Football League World), while Manchester City might look for other loan options to get him more playing time.
Interest in Tommy Doyle from the Championship
EFL Championship clubs Swansea City, Barnsley and Blackburn are all following the 20-year-old English midfielder closely. These clubs have enquired the Citizens over the availability of Doyle. All three English clubs would be happy to provide Doyle with more minutes than his current German outfit.
There is a lot of competition for the exciting English midfielder from across the border as well. Teams from France, Spain and Holland are also interested in the Englishman’s signature.
These clubs could provide a higher standard of football than what he is currently getting in the second tier of German Football.
Doyle has seven appearances for Manchester City’s first team under Pep Guardiola. He had a very productive season in the Premier League 2 last year, netting 4 goals and providing 11 assists.
It remains to be seen whether the Manchester City academy graduate makes a switch to a Championship side midway through the season.
