The 17-year-old attacking midfielder has returned to London with no intention of going back to Manchester as he looks to secure the promise of first-team football elsewhere

Jadon Sancho has stopped training at Manchester City as he attempts to force a move away from the club.

The 17-year-old attacking midfielder has not attended training at the City Football Academy since last week and has returned to London with no intention of going back.

Sancho has one year left on his scholarship deal but has asked to leave City because he does not see a future for himself there. He is now just waiting to be released so that he can sign for another club.

Tottenham and Arsenal are the favourites to sign Sancho, and Spurs have already made the first move.

Last month they asked City if Sancho could be included in the deal that took Kyle Walker to the Etihad Stadium, but the Manchester club turned down their request.

If Sancho were to sign with Arsenal or Spurs, City would be due a compensation fee close to £4m.

City rate Sancho very highly and have offered him a three-year professional deal worth £30,000 per week to keep him at the club. But Sancho has rejected it, believing that his path to the first team is blocked and that he would be likelier to play senior football elsewhere.
