Thanks to Tony Pulis and West Brom for allowing the deal to happen. It's now up to Jonathan to work hard for the team and express his talent in a City shirt.'

Leko, 18, has made 14 appearances for West Brom in the Premier League since making his debut against Sunderland in April 2016, in doing so he became the first player born in 1999 to play in the topflight.
