Manchester City's January move for the rising Rochdale winger, Kwadwo Baah reportedly 'collapsed' at the 'medical stage' of the deal, according to new information from the Telegraph.

Everything had seemed like the deal had been completed during the final moments of transfer deadline day back in January, with multiple sources reporting a £300,000 fee being agreed between the Premier League and League One side.

Baah himself even described the transfer as a 'dream move', and it was believed that the player would merely remain with Rochdale on-loan until the end of the campaign, before heading out on a second loan for the 2021/2022 season.

However, new information from Mike McGrath of the Telegraph has revealed that no such agreement was finalised due to a last-minute issue.

McGrath reports that Baah’s move from Rochdale to Manchester City 'collapsed' at the 'medical stage' of the deal. City had reportedly 'agreed terms' on the 18-year-old moving to the Etihad Stadium at the end of the 2020/2021 season, but instead the teenager will now be back on the market when his current deal expires in three months.

Given the talent of the player, it comes as no surprise to understand that a number of Premier League and European clubs have targeted the forward, with many suggesting he has the potential to play at the very top level of the game.

City's search for rising talent will undoubtedly continue nonetheless, and there is an understanding that a deal for Fluminense's rising attacker, Kayky (17) is edging towards completion with documentation only to be completed.
