Manchester City have completed the signing of 19-year-old defender Issa Kabore from Mechelen.

The Burkinabe player, who usually features at right-back, has signed a five-year deal with the Premier League runners-up but will be loaned back to Mechelen until the completed of the 2020/21 campaign.

Kabore made his debut for Mechelen in February of this year as his club were defeated 2-1 by Charleroi.

Since then, however, he has made four additional starts with Mechelen winning three of those fixtures and drawing one.

In the last match against Eupen, he recorded his first senior assist as they drew 1-1.

He has been deployed at right-back in each of those matches, but his strength is going forward as he utilises his tremendous speed to get beyond the opposition lines to get crosses into the area.
