Man City youngster Roberts on Bournemouth radar

Bournemouth are considering a loan move for Manchester City youngster Patrick Roberts, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

Roberts joined City from Fulham during the summer but the young winger has struggled for regular minutes on the pitch for the first team as he continues to hone his craft with the U21s.

As a result, it is widely expected that Roberts will be leaving City on a temporary basis during the January transfer window and it is believed that Bournemouth are keen on signing the 18-year-old on loan until the end of the season.

After showing glimpses of his massive potential with the City academy, Roberts could be sent away to another Premier League club in order to experience football regularly in a first team environment.
