Manchester City youngster Alex Nimely is in talks with Championship outfit Doncaster Rovers over a potential loan-move to the Keepmoat stadium, according to Sky Sports. 

Nimely has struggled for first team football at Manchester City, since his arrival as a teenager from Cameroonian outfit Coton De Garoua. He has made only two appearances since arriving in 2008, and has spent most of his time on-loan in the lower leagues of English football. 

Nimely has had spells at Middlesbrough, Coventry City and Crystal Palace, but non of these moves have helped him force his way into the Manchester City XI. But despite this lack of success, the Manchester City coaches still hold him in high regards, despite the vast number of managerial changes that have occurred since Sven Goran Eriksson signed Nimely in 2008. 

Nimely, should he stay at Manchester City this season would face strict competition in the striking department, following the arrivals of Stefan Jovetic and Alvaro Negredo in the summer. City also have the likes of Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero available for selection, meaning Nimely is unlikely to gain first-team football any-time soon. 

He has begun training at the Keepmoat stadium, ahead of a proposed one-month loan deal with the Championship side. Donny manager Paul Dickov is keen on bolstering his squad following a 3-1 defeat to Blackpool in the first game of the Championship season. 

And this is ideal for City bosses, who are happy to allow Nimely to go out on-loan to gain valuable first-team experience.
