Manchester City interested in Colwill
Colwill earned praise from Carlos Corberan for his performances in Championship last season. He has convinced the Spaniard that he’ll go to the top in the future.

This will surely increase the youngster’s confidence. He is becoming a starter for the Seagulls who are one of the most in-form sides in the Premier League. It won’t be a surprise if he gets called up by the England National team soon. Reports suggest that he is close to the first call-up for The Three Lions.
Colwill is best known for his passing, creating chances for teammates, and aerial duels which makes him very much a modern centre-back.
