Manchester City’s England midfielder Keira Walsh has handed in a formal transfer request at the club.

Walsh, who has starred for England at the World Cup, was part of City’s double winning side last season, and has also played in five out of the Lionesses six games in France this summer. However, the 22 year old’s performances have attracted interest from Lyon and Atletico Madrid, who are understood to have placed formal bids for the midfielder, which City are reported to have rejected.

If she leaves, it will mean another summer departure as Nikita Parris and Claire Emslie left the blues since the end of the season.
