Josel Angel Tasende, more commonly known as Angelino, is a Spanish left-back who moved to the Manchester City academy in a £4.05 million deal from Deportivo at the age of just 16.
He has been loaned out to four different clubs since his arrival, with the most recent being Dutch side NAC Breda. He featured heavily for them, making 34 appearances in the Eredivisie, scoring three and assisting six as they finished in 14 place.
Lee Johnson will be looking to strengthen in the left-back position due to Premier League interest from Joe Bryan and a loan signing for Angelino could be a good move. Lloyd Kelly seems to be the long-term successor for Bryan and this could give him another year to develop before giving him the starting role.
Rodney Kongolo is a 20-year-old Dutch midfielder and younger brother of Monaco defender Terence. Like his brother, Rodney came through the Feyenoord academy but moved to Manchester City in 2014 for 450,000 Euros.
He spent the first three years of his City career in the youth sides before securing first-team football last season at League One side Doncaster Rovers. He played 42 times over the season with four assists, and also faced Arsenal in the EFL Cup.
It was announced last week that Gary O’Neil was leaving the club and a deal for Kongolo could give the Robins some extra depth in midfield. He is a defensive midfielder and would more than likely fit into the Marlon Pack mould of player, so he isn’t necessarily a match-winner but his importance to the team could be crucial.
