Man City make offer for Hearts fullback Aaron Hickey

Manchester City have offered to loan Hearts fullback Aaron Hickey back to the Jambos during talks for the teen.

The Daily Mail says City are bidding to seal a £1.5million transfer in January.

The English champions are keen to see off competition for the 17-year-old left-back from English Premier League rivals.

Two-footed Hickey impressed with his display in the Scottish Cup Final defeat to Celtic at the age of 16, just weeks after making his debut, and has since emerged as a key first team player.

A willingness to allow Hickey to return to Tynecastle until the summer is appealing to manager Craig Levein.
