‘Would be great for him’, ‘Perfect for his progression’ – Man City fans react as Vincent Kompany eyeing swoop for 20y/o prodigy


Manchester City fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relays a report that claims Vincent Kompany’s Burnley are looking at James Trafford ahead of the summer transfer window.

Burnley are heading for the Premier League and the hope will be that a strong summer of recruitment can set them up for a success return to the top-flight.

Vincent Kompany’s connections across the game and reputation were key in bringing in some top players this season and now, he’s looking to put a close link to work again.

As claimed by Football Insider, the Clarets are eyeing up goalkeeper Trafford, who is currently on loan away from Manchester City.

The 20-year-old shot-stopper is in his second spell with League One side Bolton Wanderers and has gone from strength to strength under Ian Evatt’s management.

Trafford has kept a thoroughly impressive 26 clean sheets in 51 games across all competitions this season, helping the Trotters to the play-offs.

He’ll be back at City this summer though and it has been said another return to Bolton is off the cards regardless of how their promotion bid ends.

The report was shared on Twitter by City Xtra and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters.

@Nerdy698: “Good for him, he’s so talented, deserves an opportunity.”

@StevenMcinerney: “This would be great for him and City as long as a buyback is involved”

@ibraaNasri: “Perfect for his progression”

@RetroShirtsFC: “Yes please, needs to be just a loan or have a buyback, too good to let go”

@RealTalkMCFC: “I was hoping to see James Trafford around the first team next season. However, there’s no need placing such a talented goalkeeper like him on the bench and play him occasionally. Selling him to Burnley with a fair buy-back-clause should be considered”
