Sky Sports understands that Brighton & Hove Albion are set to win the battle to land Manchester City starlet Abdul Razak on loan.
The 19-year-old midfielder is set for a second spell away from the Etihad Stadium after already spending time with Portsmouth this term.
Razak joined Pompey in October but after three appearances headed back to City and was soon involved in the first-team.
Razak came on as a late substitute in their Carling Cup win over Arsenal in November and has also featured on the bench a number of times.
But City boss Roberto Mancini is now set to sanction another loan move, but only once Yaya Toure has returned from Africa Cup of Nations duty later this month.
It is expected that Razak will be allowed to leave in just under two weeks, but his destination already looks decided with Brighton fending off a host of Championship rivals to land him.
