MANCHESTER CITY are considering activating Huddersfield Town midfielder Aaron Mooy’s £20m buy-back clause - according to national reports.
The hugely-influential Australian joined City in 2016 from sister club Melbourne City before joining Town on loan and has quickly become a crowd favourite at the John Smith’s Stadium.
His loan move was made into a £10m permanent switch last summer but a £20m buy-back option was included in the contract.
Mooy’s outstanding displays last season have marked the card of City, who have kept an eye on the 27-year-old’s performances in the World Cup, where he was one of the Socceroos’ stand-out players.

The 26-year-old, who has played for the German senior side, is naturally a left-back, but is also capable of featuring at right-back.
