Nmecha is yet to grab his first Deepdale goal but has impressed in recent weeks as he settles into life in the Championship.

The 19-year-old has started nine games and come off the bench four times in league and cup since joining on a season-long loan from City in August.

He is highly regarded at the Etihad with Aston Villa and Leeds among the clubs interested in his services before he opted for a move to Lancashire.
