But Bryan seems set to move out, with Fulham and Swansea also interested in signing him.

The former England U20 international came through the ranks at the Etihad but never made a senior appearance.

He joined Sheffield United in 2018 after loan spells with Bury and Oldham, winning the Young Player of the Season award at the latter.

Bryan failed to make a league appearance in his first two seasons with the South Yorkshire club and spent time on loan at Bolton.

Injuries to several defenders, including Jack O’Connell, saw him given his opportunity by former boss Chris Wilder – making 12 appearances in all competitions this season to date.

Bryan scored his first Premier League goal in their shock 2-1 victory at Old Trafford in January.

Watford have also been linked with former player and Inter Milan star Ashley Young, who is out of contract at the end of the season.

The promotion-chasing club are currently second in the Championship, nine points clear of Brentford in third.
