AYMERIC Laporte has joined Ilkay Gundogan, Phil Foden and John Stones in snubbing Man City's pre-season tour in the US, according to reports.
The defender becomes the latest star to miss out on the senior team's travels in Texas where they will face Club America and Bayern Munich.
Gundogan, Foden and Stones will join up with the U23 team who are touring in Europe, reports the Mail.
It is unknown yet if Laporte will join up with them instead.
No reasons have been given for why the senior players are missing from the squad.
But City are far from the only Premier League team who will see players miss out on pre-season tours.
