Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has admitted that young striker John Guidetti could leave the club on loan this month, as reported by the club’s official Twitter page.

Guidetti was expected to play a part in City’s first team over the past 18 months but was ruled out with a serious injury for over a year, leaving match practice non-existent.

Now fit, Pellegrini is hoping that a six month loan could boost the Swedish international back to his best and some Premier League experience would first choice.

After scoring 20 goals in 23 games on loan at Feyenoord in 2012, the 21 year olds attributes are clear and so West Ham and Stoke are preparing loan moves for him as both clubs are hugely struggling for goals this season.

Spanish side Malaga are also interested but Pellegrini’s main thought is just to get his player first team football.

“It’s true; I think that John [Guidetti] must go on loan. He’s coming back from a long injury for about 18 months,” Pellegrini said.
