Socceroo midfielder signs with Manchester City

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.

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.
