Manchester City midfielder Bismark Adjei-Boateng training with St Pauli

The 21-year-old does not seem to be in the first-team plans at The Etihad.

Manchester City, like Chelsea, are spoiled for choice when it comes to player recruitment. The club can bring in heaps of young players with little to no prospect of them ever seeing the first-team.

Most go out on loan to various feeder clubs around Europe including Norwegian side Stromsgodset. One such player is Bismark Adjei-Boateng.

The 21-year-old joined up with City back in 2011 from the Right to Dream Academy in Ghana. In 2012 he went out on loan to Godset and has not yet been back.

The combative midfielder is yet to play for City and it looks like he is now attempting to find a new club.

His most recent loan deal with the Norwegian side ended last month and rather than return to City it has now been confirmed that he is instead training with German second tier side St Pauli.

The Hamburg-based outfit have a fairly edgy reputation in the game and it would be an excellent move for the youngster.

It may not be City but it would be interesting to see how Adjei-Boateng got on in Germany if he earns a deal with the Freibeuter.
