Manchester City confirm Mooy move

Aaron Mooy has confirmed the league's worst kept secret by signing a long-term deal with Manchester City.

Mooy, 25, penned a three-year deal although it is likely that he will be loaned out to a seperate club to earn some European experience.

Brian Marwood, Managing Director of City Football Services, lamented the loss of City's star playmaker but hailed the way that the City Football Group exposes talents like Mooy to bigger leagues.

“Aaron is an extremely talented player who possesses the attributes we hope to foster and encourage within the City Football Group.

“With the unique model CFG provides, Aaron’s move to Manchester allows us to further expose him to a high standard of opportunities to ensure his professional growth.”

Luke Brattan and Antony Caceres both join Melbourne City on loan from the parent club, with the latter returning for a second season at AAMI Park.
