Man City chief Cook confirms plans to uncover UAE talent

Manchester City chief Garry Cook has confirmed plans to start bringing through young Arab talent at Eastlands. Cook admits that City's long-term plans involve identifying a rising star from within the United Arab Emirates.

Cook said: "We have a Premier League football club which can match the ambitions of young players growing up and developing in Abu Dhabi, or in the UAE.

"We are a platform for the UAE and I would anticipate that, in the next five years, we'd like to see a young Emirati player develop in the Premier League."
