McKay hits treble in testimonial

PSV Eindhoven are monitoring Karim Rekik’s situation at

Manchester City as they open their doors to a possible loan

deal.

The 18-year-old defender moved to the Etihad Stadium from

Feyenoord in the summer of 2011 and has spent the past couple of

seasons continuing his development.

He has had loan stints with Portsmouth and Blackburn Rovers over

the past couple of seasons, but is now keen to play more regularly

at a high level.

PSV appear ready to take Rekik back to his Holland homeland, but

Manchester City must first decide whether he figures in their

first-team plans or is likely to get more opportunities

elsewhere.

PSV technical director Marcel Brands told Eindhovens Dagblad:

“He has to start with Manchester City on Monday and during the

pre-season it will become clear whether or not he can be loaned

out.”

In their first pre-season friendly, a double by Ryan Christie

and goals by Gary Warren and Graeme Shinnie gave Caley a

comfortable half-time lead.

McKay netted three times in 10 minutes after the break, with

Nick Ross adding an eighth before Shinnie scored a ninth after his

penalty had been saved.
