Scottish Sun: City pick Hick

Writes Derek McGregor: "Manchester City are tracking Hearts starlet Aaron Hickey with a view to a £1.5million January swoop.

"SunSport understands the full-back, 17, came to the attention of Pep Guardiola, in May’s Scottish Cup Final defeat to Celtic.

"City view Hickey as a potential addition to their development squad.

"It's believed any deal would likely see the teenager allowed to see out the rest of the season at Hearts."

From the players

Manchester Evening News: Kevin De Bruyne has Vincent Kompany message

“He’s been a manager for like two months, so what do you expect?

"To go there and win every game? It’s not like this in football.

“I think there’s a lot of people who want him to fail, because to do this job, to be player and a manager, some people don’t like it but I know Vinny pretty well and he probably won’t care what people say about it.

"Obviously he didn’t start well in terms of points but I can understand it a little bit because he is trying to play a style that we did and obviously we had growing pains, so I can understand that.”
