The reigning Premier League champions announced the arrival of the 21-year-old from PEC Zwolle on Tuesday afternoon.

City also confirmed the departure of Kosovo midfielder Bersant Celina to Sky Bet Championship side Swansea.

The 21-year-old made four first-team appearances during the 2015/16 campaign but was then loaned out to FC Twente and Ipswich.
