City youngster Maffeo returns to Girona

Manchester City teenager Pablo Maffeo has returned to Spanish second division outfit Girona on a loan deal that runs until the end of the current campaign.

The 19-year-old right-back enjoyed a successful loan stint at the Catalonia-based club in the second half of the 2015/16 season, making 13 first-team appearances.

And, with the White and Reds challenging for promotion to Spain's top flight this term, Maffeo will have the perfect platform to showcase his talents.

A statement on Manchester City's official website read: "Everyone at Manchester City would like to wish Pablo well on his loan move and we look forward to welcoming him back in the summer."

Maffeo made three appearances for the Citizens this season, including a Man-of-the-Match display in a 1-0 defeat to Manchester United in the EFL Cup on 26 October.
