Manchester City sending England youth international on loan to FC Twente – report

Manchester City are sending another young talent to the Netherlands with England under-19 international Isaac Buckley-Ricketts heading to FC Twente on loan, Alan Nixon of The Sun reports.

The winger is poised to spend next season at the Eredivisie club, where Enes Ünal had so much success last season, in order to gain vital experience.

The 19-year-old, who has been with City since he was 13, is rated highly at the club and is seen as a potential first team player of the future.

Buckley-Ricketts was part of England’s under-19 squad that won the the European Championships in Georgia this summer, and this will be his first step outside of the Man City youth system.

City rejected several rival offers for the teenager, because Twente will provide him with the chance to play at a high level in the top tier of Dutch football.

He will become the seventh City youngster heading to the Netherlands on loan, the other six all joining CFG partner club NAC Breda, who have now taken their maximum allowed number of players on loan. Another City-owned player, Uriel Antuna, is also in talks to join FC Groningen in the same league.
