Unal joins FC Twente on season-long loan

FC Twente have confirmed the signing of Turkish prodigy Enes Unal from Manchester City on a season-long loan deal.

The Tukkers confirmed the deal for the Turkey international on their official Twitter account on Saturday, and Unal is now set for his third loan spell away from The Sky Blues.

Unal’s nine goals in 11 games for NEC last season confirmed his status as a prolific goalscorer after his career seemed to have stalled, having joined the English Premier League side from Bursaspor in a £2 million switch in the summer of 2015.

The 19-year-old striker is widely considered as one of the most talented forwards in Turkish football and recently declined a return to the Citizens’ feeder club, NEC Breda, in the Eerste Divisie, in order to continue his development in the Dutch top flight.

After making his debut as a 16-year-old for his boyhood club Bursaspor, Unal scored seven goals and registered three assists before making the move to City.
