Kayode Olanerewaju is set for a move to Manchester City instead of Newcastle United, reports have claimed.

Manchester City are set to hijack Newcastle United’s move for Nigeria striker Olanrewaju Kayode, according to several media reports.

Various reports quoting sources close to Olanrewaju Kayode have suggested Manchester City have snatched the Nigeria striker from right under the noses of fellow Premier League side Newcastle United.

Manchester City will subsequently ship out Kayode on a season-long loan to Girona, who will campaign in La Liga this season, these reports have claimed.

An official confirmation is now being expected.

The Austrian Bundesliga Goal King did his medical at City and will return to his base to rejoin the family before they head out to Spain.
