Keegan is hopeful a deal can be concluded with the full-back, who has spent the last two days with City talking over the deal.

"He's going back home tomorrow morning but I hope to get an answer from him very soon," said Keegan.

"He still has a year left on his contract at Barcelona but at this stage we are only talking about taking him on loan. I`d like to buy him but I haven`t the finances.

"I`ve told him the reasons why I`d like him here but it isn`t an easy choice for him to think he would only come here for three months and that could be it."
