Manchester City have confirmed the signing of teenage midfielder Patrick Roberts from Fulham.

Young midfielder Patrick Roberts has completed his move from Fulham to Manchester City, the Premier League club have announced.

Fulham manager Kit Symons said on Saturday that the two clubs were in advanced talks over the transfer of the 18-year-old, who has made just 22 appearances at senior level.
