PSV Eindhoven defender Jeffrey Bruma is backing their bid for Manchester City's Karim Rekik.

PSV are keen to take Rekik on-loan for another season after last term's success.

Former Chelsea defender Bruma declared: "We have almost daily contact. Of course, I always tell him to come back .

"It will be an advantage, because we are responding well together."

Signs are, however, that City boss Manuel Pellegrini will include Rekik in his first team squad this season as he prepares to sell Micah Richards.
