Skysports.com understands Manchester City starlet Abdul Razak is poised to sign a new three-year contract with the club.
The 18-year-old midfielder joined Portsmouth on a month's loan last week to gain first-team football experience.
However, the Ivory Coast-born dynamo is very much part of Roberto Mancini's plans for the future.
The Italian views the teenager as one of the few youngsters within the club that can make an impact on his star-studded squad.
Razak joined the club from Crystal Palace last July and his rapid progress at Eastlands with the Elite Development Squad propelled him to his debut against West Brom in February.
He was handed his debut by Pompey in their 3-1 defeat against Derby on Saturday as a second-half substitute, and Mancini will be watching Razak's progress closely as he seeks to unleash his talent for City.
"He's a talented footballer and a very good young man. I believe he has the ability to become a very important player for Manchester City," said Mancini.
