Manchester City have signed Brazilian Under-20 worldwide of Douglas Luiz from Vasco Da Gama in a deal reportedly worth £10.7million.

The 19-year-old underwent a medical yesterday at the City Football Academy and signed his contract, with the club now making it official.

19-year-old Douglas is expected to immediately head out on loan next season to City's sister club, Girona in Spain.

Douglas has also represented Brazil at under-20 level, and City director of football Txiki Begiristain was thrilled that he chose to continue his development with the Premier League outfit.

It follows the signings of Bernardo Silva from Monaco, goalkeeper Ederson from Benfica and Kyle Walker from Tottenham in a deal worth more than £50million, which is a world-record fee for a defender.

In a short post on Twitter, the club wrote: 'City are delighted to announce the signing of Brazilian midfielder Douglas Luiz #WelcomeDouglas'.

He is the second Brazilian to join Manchester City in less than a year after the arrival of striker Gabriel Jesus from Palmeiras in January.

However, it's understood that he will be loaned out to Spanish side Girona for the 2017-18 season, although neither club has confirmed that move, and City say they will make a statement on his future "in the coming days".
