The Brazilian fullback, Yan Couto is set for a loan deal for one more season as Manchester City works on his visa status in the United Kingdom. Rumored clubs interested have been Celtic in Scotland and a possible intra-CFG deal to ESTAC Troyes.

Troyes are already taking on Kayky and Metinho so that move could make sense. The fullback played pretty well for Girona last season and another good loan spell in a major first division league would do wonders for him as he will look t compete at City next summer for a spot on the team.

This deal would make sense and be ideal for both either in Scotland or France as he should be playing day in and day out. He is still young and playing time should be of most importance.

Thoughts on Couto? Do you like the CFG transfer strategy when it comes to young players?
