Ghanaian winger Yaw Yeboah spent last season on loan at Lille from Manchester City, and reports in France suggest he could be heading to the Ligue 1 club once again this summer.
French newspaper L'Equipe claim on Thursday that Lille would like to keep the 19-year-old on loan next season, despite him managing just 174 minutes of football this season.
Manchester City want €2m for Yeboah, if any club wants to sign him permanently, but Lille don't want to sign him permanently. It very much sounds like Lille would like to have their cake and eat it, there's little point in a loan unless Yeboah is guaranteed much more football.
There are several clubs interested in signing Yeboah on loan and it's useful to have options on the table, but the player is keen on staying at Manchester City.
The 19-year-old signed from Ghanian football academy 'Right to Dream' in 2014, and has a couple of years left on his contract. If Yeboah couldn't shine for Lille then it has to be considered unlikely he's ready to be part of Pep Guardiola's squad.
This time everyone involved needs to make sure the youngster gets games next season.
