Exclusive: Leicester City Under-18 defender Camron Gbadebo signs for Manchester City

Leicester City defender Camron Gbadebo has signed for Manchester City after a successful trial.

The 17-year-old centre-half, who was highly rated by some members of Leicester staff, only made 11 appearances for the Under-18s after joining in the summer of 2018.

The teenager’s last appearance came in a 5-1 victory against Swansea City in October, but it is understood that Manchester City were impressed with his performances and invited him to the Etihad Campus for a trial.

Having spent time with Crystal Palace and Watford as a youngster, Gbadebo joined Leicester from the Kinetic Foundation academy in Croydon.

Meanwhile, Development Squad midfielder Conor Tee has joined Bulgarian second division side OFC Pirin Blagoevgrad on a season-long loan.
