Man City's Ed Francis joins Almere City on loan

Congratulations to Ed Francis who has completed a one year loan deal to Almere City of the Dutch Eerste Divisie from Manchester City today.

The 18 year old, defensive midfielder will join up with his new teammates straight away after flying out to Almere and completing the necessary paperwork.

Almere City are a progressive club in Holland, with a proven track record in developing young players. Last season they finished a respectable 9th in the Eerste Divisie and after making some exciting signings, Ed included, they will be looking to push for promotion to the Eredivisie.

Stockport born Ed has been at City for all of his youth career, playing mainly in central defence but more recent seasons have seen Ed push into a more defensive midfield role with ease.

A move to Almere is an exciting one for Ed and we’re excited too as he is a top player and we know he will do well.

Be Exceptional.
