Manchester City Complete Sandler Transfer From PEC Zwolle

Premier League champions Manchester City have completed the signing of young Dutch defender Philippe Sandler from PEC Zwolle.

The 21-year-old joins the Citizens from the Dutch Eredivisie outfit in a deal reportedly worth £3m.

Sandler is a Dutch U20 international and a product of the famed Ajax Amsterdam Academy.

He can play as a centre back and also as a defensive midfielder.

While speaking about Manchester City’s interest earlier in March, Philippe Sandler said: “I heard that scouts from Manchester City were watching me, but you do not expect as a player to go from PEC Zwolle to City.”

“The best manager in the world, Pep Guardiola, is currently in charge there, and he can teach me a lot, and also the style in which they play football attracts me a lot.” He concluded.
