Portsmouth snap up Man City pair Karim Rekik, Luca Scapuzzi

Manchester City youngsters Karim Rekik and Luca Scapuzzi have joined Portsmouth.

Manchester City youngsters Karim Rekik and Luca Scapuzzi have joined Portsmouth.

Dutch defender Rekik, 17, joined City in the summer after coming through the youth system at Feyenoord and 20-year-old Italian forward Scapuzzi has made two appearances for City, as well as nine on loan for Oldham earlier this season.

Pompey boss Michael Appleton said: "Karim can play at left-back or as a left-sided centre-half. He’s comfortable on the ball and has the right temperament to be at a club like Manchester City.

"Luca is a good footballer who can play out wide or up front. He’s already got Football League experience at Oldham."
