A report claims that Oleksandr Zinchenko is in talks with Real Betis over a permanent move from Manchester City.
Manchester City midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko is reportedly close to joining La Liga side Real Betis on a permanent deal.
The Ukraine international rejected a move to Premier League new boys Wolverhampton Wanderers earlier this summer after a £16m fee was agreed between the two clubs.
A number of loan offers have been tabled for Zinchenko, but City are understood to be looking to cash in as he is not part of Pep Guardiola's plans.
Sky Sports News suggests that the 21-year-old is in talks with Betis and is expected to join the Spanish outfit before Friday's deadline.
Zinchenko was used 16 times by Guardiola in all competitions last season, but has yet to feature this term.
