The Norway Under-23 international has been at City now for the past seven years, with Ibrahim first arriving at Eastlands from Norwegian outfit Fjellhamar on a four-year deal in early 2007.
However, in the intervening seven-year period the highly rated and powerful midfielder has made just the one appearance for the Blues in an FA Cup tie against Scunthorpe United in January 2010.
And in the meantime, the player has also found himself shipped out on loan to the likes of Scunthorpe United, NEC in the Eredivisie and more recently Stromsgodset back in his homeland too.
In fact, the 22-year-old has spent two different period out on loan with Stromsgodset during the course of the past two years,m during which time Ibrahim has managed to find the back of the net on five occasions in his 38 league outings for the Norwegian outfit.
And now the player is set to depart the north west in the January transfer window, with the likes of the Ligue 1 duo of St Etienne and Toulouse, as well as Premier League sides Aston Villa and Swansea all keen on landing him.
