Scottish club Aberdeen have signed Manchester City’s Nigerian midfielder Chidiebere Nwakali on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old has been on City’s books since 2014, but has spent most of his time out on loan at various clubs including Malaga, Girona and Norway’s Sogndal, where he scored four times in 26 appearances in last year’s Tippeligaen.

"Manchester City have been very keen for Chidi to get some competitive game time and it's a deal we've been working on for a couple of months now," manager Derek McInnes told Aberdeen’s website.

"I'm sure he will be a positive addition to our squad."

Nwakali, who won the U-17 World Cup with Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets in 2013, will need to obtain a work permit for the move to be confirmed.
