The deal will be finalised next week, according to the report, which also claims of Tottenham’s interest in the forward.
The Telegraph has reported that Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was part of the Spurs delegation trying to persuade Knight and his family to choose them, but the youngster has chosen City instead.
Knight is a very talented and promising young forward, and the 16-year-old has a bright future ahead of him.
The youngster will not be ready for the City first team for a few more years at least, but he will be taught by some of the best coaches at the Citizens.
One should not be surprised if in the future Knight establishes himself as a key figure for City, and one suspects that Tottenham will be disappointed to have missed out on him.
