Manchester City have completed the transfer of highly-rated Turkey striker Enes Unal from Bursaspor for a reported fee of around £2million.

The 18-year-old is City's first major signing of the summer having completed formalities with the club over the weekend.

City tweeted: "Manchester City are pleased to announce the signing of Turkey international striker Enes Unal from @BursasporSk."

Unal, who has one senior international cap, built a strong reputation in youth football. He scored 24 goals in 25 games for Turkey's under-16 side and in 2013, at the age of 16, became the youngest goalscorer in the Turkish top flight when he struck against Galatasaray.
