The Citizens announced the signing of right-back Issa Kabore on their official website on Thursday afternoon.

Kabore, who has made three senior appearances for Burkina Faso, joins the Premier League side for an estimated fee of €4.5 million (R87 million), but will be loaned back to KV Mechelen for the upcoming season.

"The 19-year-old, who plays as a right-back, has put pen to paper on a five-year deal but will remain at Mechelen on loan for the duration of the 2020/21 season," a statement on City's official website read.

"Born in Burkina Faso, he played five matches in Belgium's top flight last term.

"Everyone at City would like to extend a warm welcome to Issa and we all wish him well during his time at the club."

Kabore is Pep Guardiola's second signing ahead of the 2020/21 campaign, with Brazilian right-back Yan Couto's transfer to the Etihad having been confirmed in March.
