According to reports from the Manchester Evening News, Manchester City have reached a deal over the sale of young midfielder Seko Fofana to Italian side Udinese.

Seko Fofana was recruited by Manchester City from Ligue 1 side Lorient back in the summer of 2013 and the midfielder was rated as one of the finest young talents to have emerged out of France during the time.

Fofana quickly managed to make his way into the senior team at City but due to the presence of so many stars, the youngster was not able to make a single Premier League appearance for the club.

The Frenchman did however; impress during loan spells at Championships side Fulham and Ligue 1 outfit Bastia and as a result, he was able to attract the interest from a host of clubs this summer.

Now according to reports from the Manchester Evening News, revelations can be made that City have agreed to sell Fofana to Italian Serie A outfit Udinese.

It has been claimed that City have agreed a fee of around £3.8 million for the 21-year-old and the transfer is expected to be completed within the next few days.

Although Fofana was not able to make the grade at the Etihad Stadium, the move to Udinese provides him with a wonderful opportunity to fulfill his undoubted potential.
