But the Blues boss made it very clear that there wasn’t a person inside the club that wasn’t wishing “an exceptional person” the very best once he hopefully makes the move.
We also understand that the midfielder shook hands with one hundred of the City staff when he flew back from Dubai where he had been on warm weather training with the squad.
The City manager confirmed the BBC report  that the medical had been completed but that he had heard from the club no deal has yet been completed.
He released the news in a press conference and we were told afterwards by London Stadium sources that was definitely the case with one adding that this was proving a very tough market.
Guardiola is now desperate to see the former Leeds man get minutes he deserves when he does hopefully make the move to the Irons
He said:  “The club tell me it’s still not done. He travelled yesterday to make a medical test. It is not completely done.
“Apparently, he’s going to be on loan for six months. Hopefully he can play the minutes he deserves that I couldn’t give to him.
“It is what it is. I wish him well. I said many times, he’s an exceptional human being, and a football player otherwise wouldn’t be in the national team for England so hopefully he can prove it what he really is.
“If I give him 10-15 games in a row he would play good. I didn’t give it to him. I feel so responsible for that. But at the same time, I am honest with myself, [with] the squad you have to decide what you are looking for, for different things.
“I can say how grateful I am for his behaviour on and off the pitch for many, many situations. Hopefully there he can find minutes like he can come back and next season, we will see what happens.
“Finally, he will go to West Ham and there is not one person who would not wish him all the best for his short time, four or five months, in London.”
