The door could be left open for Sheffield United to sign Tommy Doyle over the next couple of weeks. Manchester City will participate in a pre-season tour in Japan and several youngsters are set to play a part in the games, but the midfielder could be omitted from the squad.
Sheffield United have been linked with the England U21 international, they also face competition from Wolves, per Yorkshire Post.
Doyle began the last campaign as a rotation player for Oliver Norwood, but come the end of it he was deemed a significant player for the Blades and he was often selected over the more experienced midfielder. The 21-year-old ended the campaign with seven assists to his name in 39 appearances, and he chipped in with four goals [SofaScore].
The most important goal he scored for United was the last minute thunderbolt into the top right corner against Blackburn Rovers in the Quarterfinal of the FA Cup. A moment that will live fond in his memory and the fans’ memory for years to come.
Last season Doyle demonstrated an array of qualities, and with help from Norwood and John Fleck mentoring him, Doyle seemed to look better and better every week.
If the midfielder does not take part in Manchester City’s pre-season, a return to Sheffield United could be the likely scenario.
