Palmer, a product of Manchester City’s esteemed academy, finds himself at a crossroad following the arrival of Jeremy Doku from Stade Rennais to the Premier League champions. Despite delivering stellar performances in the early stages of the new season, Palmer’s game-time could become limited due to increased competition.

The young midfielder showcased his potential with two notable goals in key matches – one in the Community Shield defeat to Arsenal and another in the UEFA Super Cup victory over Sevilla in Athens. However, with the importance of regular game-time for his developmental progress, the possibility of a move away from the Etihad Stadium is being explored.
