Man City close in on £6million USA goalkeeper Zack Steffen set to go out on loan

December 8, 2018

The USA shot-stopper currently plays for Columbus Crew in the MLS.

But Pep Guardiola's side are closing in on bringing him to the Premier League – but only temporarily.

According to the Daily Mail, a work permit may not be awarded to the 23-year-old keeper which may see him leave on loan.

Potential destinations include Patrick Vieira's Nice and sister club Girona.

Negotiations between City and Columbus include add-ons that would see the deal rise to £10m.

Steffen has nailed down the No1 spot for the USA men's national team in recent weeks.

Guardiola, meanwhile, has been preparing for his team's visit to Stamford Bridge this evening.

Champions City were leapfrogged by Liverpool after Jurgen Klopp's team beat Bournemouth in the lunchtime kick-off.

Guardiola's team need a point to return to the top spot.

But they face a Chelsea side coming off the back of Wednesday's defeat at Wolves, seeing them slip to fifth in the Premier League.
