DONE DEAL: Man City seal signing of Hajduk Split defender Palaversa

Manchester City have completed the signing of Ante Palaversa.

The 18-year-old Croatian has finalised a deal to join the Citizens.

But he will be on loan at Hajduk Split until 2020, with City having an option to recall him midway through the 2019-2020 season should they wish to do so.

The midfielder, who has played 14 games for Hadjuk this season, was delighted at the completion of the transfer.

He is quoted by Goal.com as saying: "I'm Hajduk's saying, playing at the Poljud was always my dream, and after all, I'm happy to see the work of the Hajduk Academy recognized one of the biggest clubs in the world.

"Thanks to Manchester City on the trust, there is still a lot of work ahead for me, I have not yet shown all I can and I hope to play for Hajduk to justify the great trust I received from England champions."
