Manchester City has signed promising midfielder Ante Palaversa from Hajduk Split and loan him back to the Croatian club.

Palaversa is reported to have cost an initial £5.5million and heads back to Croatia until June 2020, though City can recall him next January.

Still just 18, Palaversa is enjoying a breakout season with Hajduk, playing 14 of its 18 league matches and scoring twice.

Palaversa is a combative central midfielder whose passing ability is also highly regarded, while he has captained Croatia's Under-19s.
