OFFICIAL! Man City forward leaves Premier League, signs for new club

Young Portuguese forward, Felix Correia, has left reigning Premier League champions Manchester City to sign for Dutch Eredivisie side, AZ Alkmaar, on a season-long loan deal.

The move to Alkmaar comes within weeks of the highly-rated 18-year-old prodigy arriving the Etihad Stadium from Sporting Lisbon back in July to become City’s fourth signing of the summer.

“We are happy with the arrival of Felix,” Alkmaar’s director of football affairs, Max Huiberts, said. “[He] is ​​a real winger with a lot of speed, individual action and depth. Nowadays you don’t see that much anymore with a player with these characteristics.”

Alkmaar revealed on its official website that Correia’s season-long loan move comes with an option for the teenager to extend his stay in the Netherlands for a further year.

Correia was signed for an initial £3.2 million deal after the arrivals of Rodri from Atletico Madrid, Angelino from PSV Eindhoven and Zack Steffen from Columbus Crew, with City expected to pay an additional £3.2 million in add-ons.
