According to a report from the Dutch outlet Voetbal InternationalEredivise team SC Heerenveen are set to sign the promising Serbian winger on a simple one-season loan deal.

After a 13th place finish in Eredivise’s final standings last season, Heerenveen is well on the lookout for short-term attacking solutions and sees Stevanovic as a viable option to help reorganize his attack.

Heerenveen has been looking for the Manchester City prospect for some time and would like to finalize a possible loan deal for the talent during the ongoing summer transfer window.

The Dutch club are already in talks with Manchester City officials over the possible deal, so the ball is in their court as to whether such a deal will materialize soon.

The Premier League powerhouse is currently in no rush to decide which path they plan to take with Stevanovic for next season as club officials plan to assess all possible options for him.

The 18-year-old prospect is emerging from a promising campaign in his final season with Paritzan, where he recorded six Super liga Srbije goal contributions.

As he is not expected to make the Manchester City first team this coming season, a loan is certainly best for him in his first year under contract with the Premier League champions.

More so, a move to play feature for Heerenveen would certainly be ideal for Stevanovic, especially given the tactical challenges that would be presented to him in the Eredivise.
