Socceroos midfielder Luke Brattan has secured his dream move to EPL giants Manchester City.
Reports emerged on Monday night (AEDT) the ex-Brisbane Roar playmaker has joined City on a four-year deal.
The 25-year-old has immediately been loaned out to Championship club Bolton Wanderers until January 3 next year.
Brattan, who was born in England, spent five years with Roar, winning three Hyundai A-League championships.
He had been on the lookout for a new club after opting to leave Brisbane before the new A-League season in search of a move abroad.
And he has achieved his goal, joining one of the biggest clubs in world football.
The deal is a huge boost to Brattan, who will be hopeful of being included in the upcoming Socceroos squad for next month’s World Cup qualifiers against Kyrgyzstan and Bangladesh.
