Man City sign star Belgium winger Doku from Rennes

Manchester City have signed winger Jeremy Doku from French Ligue 1 side Stade Rennais, with the Belgium international agreeing to a five-year deal with the Premier League champions.

British media reported that City would pay Rennes around Stg 55 million ($A107.36 million) for the 21-year-old.

“This is a great day for me, both personally and professionally,” Doku told the club website.

“I am a young player with so much learning and improving to do. Working with (manager) Pep (Guardiola) and his staff, and playing alongside these world-class players, will make me a much better player. I feel sure of that.

“Watching City last season was amazing. To win the Treble is the hardest thing in football and they did it. You cannot imagine how exciting it is to be joining this team.”

Doku joined Rennes in October 2020 from Belgium’s Anderlecht, making more than 90 appearances for the French side in all competitions and scoring 12 goals.

He becomes City’s third signing of the close season after Croatia midfielder Mateo Kovacic and defender Josko Gvardiol arrived at the Etihad Stadium earlier this summer.

Doku made his debut for Belgium in September 2020 in a 2-0 Nations League win over Denmark.

He was called up for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, making one appearance off the bench before Belgium were eliminated in the group stage.

Transfer: Trabzonspor keen to extend Onuachu’s loan for another season

Trabzonspor want to take Southampton forward Paul Onuachu on loan for another season.

Onuachu joined the Turkish Super Lig side on a season-long loan last summer.

The Nigeria international has registered nine goals and three assists in 17 league appearances for Trabzonspor.

The Black Sea Storm are keen to sign the striker permanently but cannot meet up with Southampton’s €15 million valuation.

According to a report in Transfermarkt, Trabzonspor president, Ertugrul Dogan is pushing hard to have Onuachu at the club at least for another season.

A return to Southampton is highly unlikely for the lanky hitman, who struggled to establish himself during his six-month stay at the club.
