Manchester City have made their one and only transfer deadline day signing – a 16-year-old goalkeeper from Poland!
Pawel Sokol has joined the City academy from Polish side Korona Kielce after a successful trial period during pre-season.
Sokół’s agent, Mariusz Piekarski, confirmed the deal on his Twitter with a photograph of the young shot-stopper holding up the City shirt.

Sokol is not the only goalkeeper to have been added to the flourishing City academy this summer. Another highly-rated young ‘keeper, Louie Moulden, was signed from Liverpool in July.
