HAVE YOUR SAY

The 19 year old spent time on loan at Championship rivals Birmingham City last season, making 17 appearances and scoring twice, he is a left footed creative player, sounds like he could be stepping into the void left by the departure of Jordi Gomez, and he is highly thought of at Manchester City.

Speaking about his latest capture Uwe Rösler told the clubs official website – ‘City are looking for Emyr to develop and as we have demonstrated in the past, top young players are able to come to us and improve, both on the field with regular playing time, but also off the field in terms of absorbing our first team training culture and discipline and helping them to improve every facet of their professional life.

‘He is a very exciting player, I know him after working with him during a short spell I spent at City’s Academy in 2010-11 and he is clearly a very talented young player who has already broken through to the national squad, plus has played in the Championship.

‘He is a silky left footer, versatile, who can dictate play with his passing, but who does not shy away from the physical demands of the Championship.’

New kid on the block – Emyr Huws
