The 19-year-old has been given the green light for a new season-long loan after spending last season at Blackburn Rovers.
Nmecha has confirmed that he will not extend his stay in Belgium, but Anderlecht are on the lookout for another young talent from Manchester City.
Taylor Harwood-Bellis has been rumored to have been a special request from Anderlecht manager Vincent Kompany to shore up his squads defense.
The defender, who is under contract at the Etihad until 2024, is to sign for Anderlecht, with the Manchester Evening News reporting that Harwood-Bellis flew to Belgium on Monday morning for medical.
Manchester City like the idea that Taylor Harwood-Bellis will learn from Vincent Kompany at Anderlecht, in terms of football, leadership, and personal conduct. When Harwood-Bellis heard that Kompany wanted him, it was ‘too good to refuse’, the report adds.
While final paperwork is still to be completed, he is expected to be announced as an Anderlecht player in the coming hours.
The news was shared on Twitter by City_Xtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts, with one fan simply branding it as ‘disrespect’.
Here we look at some of the reaction to the news from Twitter…
Vinnie bringing another academy lad to his club🤩— ellie-mae💙🦋 (@Elliemaew13) June 23, 2021

Very good move— HM (@mcfc_hsm) June 23, 2021
Very good move for the kid has great potential as well— Adam🇧🇪 (@AdamKDB123) June 23, 2021
He really can’t do better then getting trained by the best ever defender our club has seen— KKP (@MCFC_KKP) June 23, 2021
That’ll be a really good move for him. I know City fans generally see loan moves as a “this guy has no chance” situation, but hopefully linking up with Vinnie is a sign he has a big future for us.— Jack Parkes (@jparkes1991) June 23, 2021
