Manchester City announce the signing of Patrick Roberts


Manchester City have confirmed they have signed Fulham wonderkid Patrick Roberts.

Roberts becomes City’s third high-profile English signing of the summer after the arrivals of Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph as they continue their home-grown recruitment drive.

The 18-year-old is not expected to form part of City’s first-team squad, and it is not yet clear whether he will be loaned out in order to secure regular senior football next season.

Roberts, a boyhood Liverpool fan, made just two senior starts in the Championship last season as Fulham battled to preserve their survival in the second tier but was considered the jewel of a talented youth side that reached the FA Youth Cup final in 2014.
