    Liverpool have transfer ban on young players at the moment, when he turns 17 they will sign him I imagine.

    Would have liked to have him at City but when Gerrard is your cousin and you're from there, there is most likely going to be some affinity to Liverpool, think of the PR from a Liverpool perspective too it writes itself.

    How many years did he spend at our academy can anyone say? I wonder if they will give City any credit for his development or try and claim him as one of their own as they did with Raheem Sterling.

    I think I remember reading that we took him from Wigan. So I don't think he was at MCFC for much longer than a few years.

    I'm sure we'll take zero credit and he'll take joy in talking about his blocked pathway, and how moving to Liverpool will improve his chances of a career, etc.

    I'm actually not sure if he's still officially a City player. When he was named in the lastest England U17 Squad he had ' Unattached ' next to his name.

    As far as I know, players sign a 2 year 'contract' at 14 and sign their scholarship at 16, I think he's not actually a City player anymore and could go anywhere he wants except for Liverpool due to their ban but will likely sign for them when he turns 17.

    Laughably Liverpool got their ban for poaching players from other Academies, yet here they are clearly doing it again with Duncan.

    But let the handwringers blame City for not playing yoof

    We just signed that lad from la Nadia for minimal compensation. Shit happens, not the end of the world.
