City sign Pierre Fonkeu

31 August 2017

City have completed the signing of young Belgian striker Pierre Fonkeu.

Fonkeu, who came through the youth system at Club Brugge, has signed a two-year contract with the Club after impressing during a successful trial with City’s Under-23s.

The forward, 20, played in a number of pre-season friendlies for the U23s and he will continue to train with the Academy.

“Pierre integrated really quickly into the group, and mainly that was down to his performances,” says Under-23s manager Matt Gill. “He works really hard during sessions and he took that into games, and he’s a lovely lad to work with. He’s hungry to learn and get even better and that’s the type of character we want here.

“He’s very hard working for the team, quick, strong and a really unselfish striker. He chases lost causes and puts defenders under pressure.”
