Sources: Man City agree to sign Leeds United starlet Nfonkeu
Man City have agreed to sign Leeds United rising star Brooklyn Nfonkeu, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.
The Premier League giants have made a move for the teenager after being impressed in youth team matches.
A City source has told Football Insider that terms have been agreed with Nfonkeu and he is set to link up with their academy set-up.
Nfonkeu is heading out of Elland Road after three-and-a-half years at the club.
He joined Leeds in January 2018 from local club Wortley FC and was most recently playing for the Under-15s.
A move to big-spending City, who waltzed to last season’s Premier League title as well as reaching the Champions League final and winning the League Cup, will be regarded as proof of Nfoneku’s immense promise.
