NAC will again seek to strengthen their squad with a raft of temporary additions from Premier League partners City.
BN / DeStem says only Paolo Fernandes will return from City for the new season, with another five potential openings available to be filled.
Serbia youth international Luka Ilic, 19, is now in talks to make the move to NAC. He joined City last year from Red Star Belgrade for €5m and spent the season on-loan with the Serbian champions.
Ilic is now set to continue his football education in Holland, with City eager to place him at NAC for the new campaign.
