Manchester City defender Karim Rekik is now seeing action on-loan at Blackburn Rovers.

Rekik played the full 90 minutes at the weekend for his new club as they drew 0-0 at Ewood Park to fellow playoff-chasers, Leeds United.

"I hope we can push on to the play-offs and get promotion in the end but also I want to learn as a player and come back to City as a starting XI player," Rekik said.

"I'm 18 now and I think as a young player you need to play every weekend to become a better player. That's very important in your football career."
