Man City have stepped up their recruitment of Europe's top teenage footballing talent with a move for Gavin Bazunu. The goalkeeper, signed from Shamrock Rovers, is very highly rated in his homeland and is expected to player for City's youth team for the next two seasons.

City had been scouting Bazunu for several months and have beaten Arsenal to the signing of the shot stopper.

"This is the first major sale of a player who has been developed in the Shamrock Rovers Academy since its inception in 2016," said Shamrock Rovers in a statement.

"Specifics on the transfer details are not being disclosed. However it is fair to say that this is the biggest transfer by an Irish club in the professional era.

"The funds generated from player sales this season are significant which in itself shows that our strategy is being implemented extremely well."

Bazunu has kept a clean sheet for Shamrock Rovers in all of his appearances so far and is believed to have made a move to the Cityzens in a transfer deal worth £2.8 million.
