Manchester City’s Finley Burns joins Swansea City on loan

Manchester City defender Finley Burns has joined Swansea City on loan for the rest of the season, subject to international clearance.

The 18-year-old academy graduate, who recently signed a new long-term contract with the Citizens, will venture out on loan for the first time and seeks to gain valuable first-team experience in the Championship.

“Finley Burns is a really, really excellent prospect. He will give us real depth and competition and we are looking forward to having him,” said Swansea head coach Russell Martin.

“I think it works well for us, works well for Manchester City and works well for the players. Hopefully we’ll all benefit from it.”

Burns has been with Man City’s academy since joining from Southend United at the age of 13 and has progressed through the ranks before cementing his place as a regular in their Elite Development Squad.

The 6ft 5in centre-back has made 22 appearances for the academy side this season, and he was also handed his senior debut in City’s 6-1 EFL Cup victory against Wycombe Wanderers in September last year.

Burns, who will wear the number 30 shirt, has become Swansea’s fourth signing of the January transfer window, following the additions of Andy Fisher, Cyrus Christie and Hannes Wolf.
