New York City FC could land another attacking talent, perhaps via Manchester City’s books.

Gary Mackay-Steven, 28, is a left-sided midfielder/attacker from Scotland currently on the books with Scotland.

Sky Sports is reporting that Mackay-Steven is having a medical at Man City on Friday ahead of a move to City Football Group outlet NYCFC.

Mackay-Steven managed seven goals and four assists in just over 2,400 minutes for Aberdeen this season, his second campaign since leaving Celtic in 2017.

He’s also spent time at Dundee United. Between the three Scottish clubs, he’s managed 37 goals and 43 assists in the top flight with a further 17 and 14 across 60 cup competitions domestically and abroad.

NYCFC boss Domenec Torrent has favored a 4-1-4-1 and 3-4-3 this season, and has plenty of options to use on the left including Alexandru Mitrita and Maxi Moralez. The side has lost just once this season, drawing eight times, and sit eight points back of first-place Philadelphia having played three fewer games.

He’s been capped twice in his career.
