Signing of Fulham starlet Roberts strengthens Man City's English contingent

Manchester City have completed the signing of Fulham teenager Patrick Roberts on a long-term deal.

The signing is a move from City to further boost their homegrown ranks.

The 18-year-old winger has moved for a figure that is understood to be £11million, with £5m up front with a further £6m in add-ons.

City announced the signing on Twitter with a picture of Roberts signing the contract but offered no further details.

Fulham meanwhile announced the deal, saying: “The club can confirm that Patrick Roberts has joined Manchester City for an undisclosed fee. We wish him the best of luck in the future."

The 18-year-old had a year left on his contract at Craven Cottage but handed in a transfer request on Saturday.

Roberts made his Fulham debut at the Etihad Stadium against City in 2014 and amassed 22 first-team appearances for the Cottagers. He follows fellow Englishmen Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph to City following their moves from Liverpool and Aston Villa respectively.
