Manchester City set to sign Morten Spencer from Sunderland – report

Manchester City are set to sign teenage prodigy Morten Spencer from Sunderland, Alan Nixon of Sun Sport reports.

Spencer is a 14-year-old England youth international who plays as a left winger and attacking midfielder, and is one of many big talents in the Sunderland academy to have been targeted by big clubs lately.

City will have to pay a compensation fee of around £200,000 for Spencer with Sunderland entitled to a percentage of any future fee.

The Premier League champions have been committed for a number of years to finding not only the best young talent abroad, but also locally, for their academy.

Two examples are Jadon Sancho, brought in from Watford, and Rabbi Matondo, who arrived from Cardiff, both of whom have left City but moved for big money to top German clubs after developing at the City Football Academy.
