James Horsfield will become the seventh Manchester City player to join NAC Breda this summer – but unlike the six before him, the 21-year-old is moving to the Rat Verlegh Stadion on a permanent basis.
City Watch has learned that Hazel Grove-born Horsfield is flying over to the Netherlands on Sunday to complete his move from City to the newly-promoted Eredivisie side.
Horsfield made a good impression on loan at Stijn Vreven’s side last season after joining on 7 January 2017, making 20 appearances with one goal and three assists to his name.
The versatile player will join Pablo Marí, Angeliño, Thierry Ambrose, Manu García, Paolo Fernandes and Thomas Agyepong, all of whom have joined the City Football Group partner club on loan ahead of next season.
We wish James the best of luck in the next stage of his career.
