New York City FC manager Jason Kreis announced today that a number of players can be loaned from Manchester City FC to fill in the ranks and field a competitive side in their first season. Kreis is currently in England for a stay of six months, observing how things are done at Man City.
“We will have the ability to take four players on loan from the club here, so I’m looking a lot at the younger players, and the U-18s and the U-21s at the moment,” Kreis told reporters. “And also the players that are out on loan.
“We have a very big interest in bringing some City players over to join us in New York and I certainly think there’s the talent there. And the ambition is there as well, so we’ll have to get with those guys over the next six months to a year and see whether or not that’s something they would like as well.”
Meanwhile, a number of proposed logos for New York City FC have been designed. Check out the hashtag #myNYCFC for more details.
