Yangel Herrera will apparently join up with City following the South American U20 Championships, where he is playing for Venezuela.
According to the Daily Mail, the midfielder could join MLS outfit New York City or A-League club Melbourne City on loan in order to get more minutes.
Manager Pep Guardiola did not bring in any reinforcements to the first team, despite being 13 points adrift of Premier League leaders Chelsea.
