Heerenveen talks for Man City signing Filip Stevanovic

Manchester City signing Filip Stevanovic is attracting immediate Eredivisie interest.

Voetbal International says the 18-year-old winger was expected to arrive at the Etihad this summer after City signed him back in January and loaned him back to boyhood club Partizan Belgrade.

But with stiff competition for places in the club's first team squad, Stevanovic 's chances of racking up minutes under Pep Guardiola are slim.

Having already played 73 senior games for Partizan Belgrade in Serbia, it is clear Stevanovic is too good to play in the Premier League 2 for the club's U23 team.

Instead, Stevanovic is in talks with Eredivisie outfit Heerenveen over a potential loan move.
