Citizens loan Zuculini to Rayo Vallecano

Manchester City youngster Bruno Zuculini has been farmed out on loan to Rayo Vallecano in Spain's second tier.

The 23-year-old Argentine midfielder has yet to make an appearance for City since joining from Racing Club in 2010, with earlier loan moves at Valencia, Cordoba Middlesbrough, and AEK Athens.

The Citizens took to social media platform Twitter to confirm the news of Zuculini's loan deal.

The statement read: "Loan news: @brunozuculini has joined Spanish side @RVMOficial on a season-long loan – good luck Bruno!"

Zuculini has made eight appearances for Argentina's U20 side, but is yet to break into the reckoning for the country's senior nation team.
