Man City set to snap up Divine Mukasa
A long-term contract has been agreed between City and Mukasa with a deal expected to be formally announced by the club within the next 48 hours.
As reported by West Ham supporters website Hammers.news, Mukasa shone as a 15-year-old in West Ham under 18’s 2-0 victory over Arsenal last season, a result that clinched the league title for the youngsters.
Driving forward from attacking midfield, Mukasa is another outstanding signing snapped up by Sky Blues’ youth setup as their academy continues to play a role in the club’s long-term project.
