Shakhtar Donetsk are willing to loan out midfielder Nery Castillo to Manchester City - but only if the Premier League club offer £3.5million for a season-long switch.

Castillo´s agent has claimed the Mexico international is on the verge of joining City but Shakhtar president Rinat Akhmetov insists a deal is a long way from completion.

"A one-year loan - five million euros and there will be no options, meaning a right to buy (Castillo)," Akhmetov, the country´s richest man, told the club´s official website. "We will see in a year whether to bring him back to Shakhtar or if we sell him. The price could be 20, 30, 40 or 50 million euros."
