MANCHESTER CITY are making a shock swoop to sign Cameron Coxe after he was released by Cardiff City.
The 21-year-old full-back was deemed surplus to requirements by the Championship side’s boss Neil Harris.
Now he is set to earn himself a dream move to the Etihad with Pep Guardiola keen to add him to his squad, according to Wales Online.
City have watched Coxe several times over the past season and Guardiola is a big admirer.
The star, born in Merthyr, had been frustrated at his lack of first-team opportunities under Harris.
He had been searching for another club for some time as he ran down his contract.
League Two Cheltenham Town had been linked with a move but now City have surprisingly moved to snap up his services.

Coxe could be sent to New York City, Melbourne City or Girona, all sister clubs in the Manchester City Football Group’s portfolio, on loan to get further experience.
The ace was handed his debut at Cardiff back in 2017 but has made just four senior appearances in total.
He has represented Wales at U21s level and was named by Ryan Giggs in his senior squad for the 2018 summer friendly with Mexico.
