City seal Leko loan deal

City have completed the season-long loan signing of West Brom attacker Jonathan Leko.

The 18-year-old has agreed the deal after completing a medical and he will link up his new team-mates after completing international duty with England Under-19s.

Head coach Lee Johnson told bcfc.co.uk: "We are always on the look out for quality and Jonathan has that.  

"He also brings genuine pace and versatility in the forward areas.

"Thanks to Tony Pulis and West Brom for allowing the deal to happen.

"It's now up to Jonathan to work hard for the team and express his talent in a City shirt."

Leko further strengthens City's squad, given he can play up top, in behind a front man or on either wing.

Born in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Leko joined the West Brom Academy at the age of 11.

His Baggies debut came in September 2015 in the EFL Cup and his Premier League bow came in April 2016 at the age of 16. He was also the first player to be born in 1999 to start a Premier League fixture.

Internationally, Leko has already represented England at Under-16, Under-17 and Under-18 level.
