Preston loan Brandon Barker from Manchester City

Manchester City winger Brandon Barker has joined Sky Bet Championship side Preston on a season-long loan.

The 21-year-old came through the ranks at the reigning Premier League champions and has been capped by England at U18, U19 and U20 levels.

He spent the 2016-17 season in the Netherlands with NAC Breda and had a successful spell on loan in Scotland last season, playing 30 times for Premiership side Hibernian.

Barker told Preston’s official website: “I am delighted to get the deal done, as soon as it came up I was buzzing.

“I have had a couple of successful loan spells and I am looking to build on that. Last year in Scotland I did okay and hopefully this year is the same.

“I hope I can show what I do in the games. Hopefully I can help the team as much as I can, work hard and try and give the fans what they want.

“I spoke to the manager and he did a good job of selling the club to me. He is a manager I think I can improve under; he has a young squad with some older faces and I can’t wait to get going.”
