Manchester City have signed 19-year-old Burkino Faso right-back Issa Kabore from Belgian club Mechelen.
The teenager has joined for an undisclosed fee and will head back to Mechelen on loan next season.
“This is a win-win situation for all parties,” said Mechelen sports director Tom Caluwe.
“The player himself dreams of the Premier League and can calmly prepare for that step with us.
“City has a clear path in mind and indicated that our club is important for the further development of Kabore. And this way we can still keep Issa in Mechelen.”
Also, the club has reached an agreement to sign Ferran Torres.
The Valencia winger is set to join on a five-year deal after his stunning season entering the last year of his contract.
City are believed to have paid €25m for his services plus €12m in add-ons
