Manchester City Added A Second Player in The January Transfer Window



Manchester City have signed midfielder Jack Harrison from New York City.

The 21-year-old has penned a three-and-a-half-year deal at the club but will be immediately loaned out to Championship side Middlesbrough for the rest of the season.

Harrison impressed in Major League Soccer after making his breakthrough for Patrick Vieira's side in 2016.

In his first season the youngster became the first teenager to score for New York City - eventually netting 14 goals in 59 appearances for the club.

During his first season Harrison was also nominated for Rookie of the Year and finished runner-up in the MLS Goal of the Year award.

The England Under-21 winger was a part of the Manchester United youth academy before moving to America as a teenager, and he is now looking forward to returning to England as a professional.

“I can’t wait to get started over here,” he said.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time with New York City and I’d like to thank Patrick Vieira and his coaching staff for helping me to develop as a player.

“I feel I’ve really improved working under him and playing regularly in the MLS, but now I’m looking forward to testing myself in England.

“Middlesbrough are a good club, with Premier League experience and they’re in the mix for a return via the playoffs this season.

“Hopefully I can help them achieve that.”
