The latest transfer news and views from Manchester City.
The Spaniard played 71 competitive games for Man City in total.
Rekik also spent last campaign on loan with the Dutch side, making 31 appearances. This will be his fourth loan spell since joining Manchester City.
Finally, former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes City have one of the strongest 'spines' of a squad in Europe.
"They won the title last year so know they have what it takes; their manager, Manuel Pellegrini, will only be stronger in his second season in charge; and then you have that spine," he told Sky Sports.
"Vincent Kompany, Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero is the strongest spine in the Premier League and perhaps one of the strongest in Europe, so City’s success will rest on those three."
