The kid brother of Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte has won a pro deal.

Leo Laporte has signed a first pro deal with Alaves.

The 16 year-old, unlike his older brother, is a striker and has followed Aymeric's path in chasing a football career in Spain and the Basque country.

Former France U21 international Aymeric Laporte, 26, made his name with Athletic Bilbao before leaving for Manchester City.
