Birmingham have raided Manchester City for teenage defensive midfielder Eddy Gnahore.

The 16-year-old has signed a five season deal at St Andrews and is expected to go straight into the club's reserve side.

Gnahore joined Manchester City as a 14-year-old after being spotted at a training centre in Paris.

Lille, Monaco, Rennes, Paris Saint Germain, Lens, Nantes and Celtic were all tracking the young Ivory Coast midfielder.
