Manchester City no longer have a choice but to accept defeat in their bid to keep Tosin Adarabioyo at the club and will reluctantly decide to sell the defender.
With just over nine months left on his current deal, Pep Guardiola’s side have been trying to persuade the defender to sign a new contract.
The City boss is said to be an admirer and ready to allow the 22-year-old the chance to compete for a place in the first-team squad.
However, and not unlike his teammate Eric Garcia, the defender sees his future away from the Etihad.
According to TEAMtalk, Adarabioyo keeps rejecting their proposals and City are ready to accept defeat.
Now City are ready to sell and interest is mounting in Adarabioyo with a host of Premier League clubs looking closely at him.
West Ham, Everton, Newcastle, Fulham and Leeds have all spoken with City about a potential deal and Adarabioyo is available for just £8m.
