The move comes as a slight surprise for a player who has shone at underage level for City and played every game in the Under-18s’ FA Youth Cup run last season, which culminated in a 4-0 victory over Leeds United in the final.

A regular for the Under-21s in 2023/24, Grant was named on the bench for a Champions League game against Red Star Belgrade in December, while he was also among the group that travelled for the final match of the Premier League season, although Grant wasn’t named in he matchday 20.

The keeper is the son of former Sheffield Wednesday and Manchester United stopper, Lee, who is now part of Kieran McKenna’s coaching team at Ipswich Town.

The departure comes in the midst of uncertainty surrounding the goalkeeping situation at City, with Ederson attracting interest from Saudi Arabia.  His deputy for last two seasons, Stefan Ortega, penned a new deal at the start of the summer and has not shied away from his desire to be no.1 in the past. Scott Carson also agreed a one-year extension with the club in May.

City have been linked with moves for several keepers in recent weeks, the latest being Mycael. FootballTransfers claim the 20-year-old is a target if Ederson were to leave this summer.

The outlet add Mycael is seen as a potential back-up to Ortega if he were to sign, although the Brazilian has made just two senior appearances for Athletico Paranaense.
