Pictured: Manchester City youngster en route to sign for Schalke 04

Rabbi Matondo passed his medical at German club Schalke yesterday and in the last minutes has travelled to sign his contract.

The 18-year-old Welsh international will be the latest wonderkid to quit the Etihad, after Jadon Sancho also headed to the Bundesliga last year and Spanish winger Brahim Diaz joined Real Madrid earlier this month.

City are receiving a considerable fee for Matondo, although the English and German media disagree on how much, and will include a buy-back clause to ensure they have the chance to re-purchase Rabbi at a reasonable cost if he fulfills his potential in Germany.

German outlet BILD has posted an image of Matondo heading to sign his Schalke deal with sporting director Christian Heidel, which means official confirmation should arrive soon.
