Gonzalez: Weighing up his options over loan move

Sky Bet

Aberdeen have joined the chase for Manchester City goalkeeper David Gonzalez, skysports.com understands.

City are ready to let the Colombian leave on a season-long loan as they want to see him tested at senior level.

Should Gonzalez impress, then they are lining him up to return to Eastlands as main back-up for Joe Hart.

A host of League One and Two clubs have contacted City in recent weeks to confirm their desire to take the 28-year-old experienced goalkeeper who has played for his country at senior level.

Rochdale and Yeovil have been in pole position but wages have been a stumbling block which has alerted Aberdeen to make Gonzalez their number one target.

Gonzalez will then be left with a tough choice of staying in England, albeit in the lower leagues, or moving to Scotland to play in the top-flight.

Colombian international Gonzalez joined City in January 2010 and after impressing in the reserves had a loan spell with Leeds United last season acting as cover for Kasper Schmeichel.
