Manchester City youth team skipper Ben Mee hopes to join the club's senior squad for preseason.

The teenage defender told City's website: "It will be a test, but it will be a good test for us to find out where we can push ourselves to. I'm looking forward to it and I can't wait to show what I can do next year.

"Platt Lane has given me a great base to progress from. I've learnt a lot from Alex Gibson and Jim Cassell, as well as everyone at the Academy. It's been a good start on the road of where I want to get to."
