    A really good young player who fits the profile of our club perfectly. Technically good, good range of passing and can cross a ball.

    It would be great to have the best young English players at city.

    They will rip us off seeing we paid £52m for Mendy

    If we sign him, then one of Sterling, Walker, Mendy or Stones would have to be left out of the squad list.

    Delph will be most likely sold. Will have year left on his deal in summer.

    So no one need to drop out

    No they wouldn't. It's a minimum of 4 association trained players, not a maximum. If anything, signing chilwell would free up room for manoeuvre elsewhere in the squad.

    I thought the same thing so I just googled it.

    Who can be on List A?
    A maximum of 25 players, two of whom must be goalkeepers. There are a minimum of eight places reserved exclusively for 'locally trained players'. If a club have fewer than eight locally trained players in their squad, then the maximum number of players on List A is reduced accordingly.

    What's a 'locally trained player'?
    There are two categories:
    1. Club-trained players – players who were on a club's books for three years between the ages of 15 and 21;
    2. Association-trained players – players who were on another club's books in the same association for three years between the ages of 15 and 21. No club can have more than four association-trained players among their eight nominees on List A.
