    Dutch website AD.nl reports today that Manchester City have agreed a deal to sign Feyenoord starlet Rodney Kongolo.

    Rodney is the 16-year-old brother of Terence Kongolo a 20-year-old who has broken through into the Feyenoord first team this season.

    Feyenoord have once again lost a very talented youngster to a big Premier League side with Rodney Kongolo opting to join Manchester City despite interest from Liverpool.

    Previously, the likes of PSG, Juventus and Marseille had all been interested in Rodney Kongolo and Feyenoord are hoping they will not lose older brother Terence to a big club in Europe.

    Rodney Kongolo just turned 16 and has signed his first professional contract with Manchester City. Following in the footsteps of the likes of Nathan Ake, Karim Rekik and Kyle Ebecilio who have left Feyenoord for sides in England.

    Ad.nl point out that Rodney Kongolo’s deal at Manchester City is immediately more than his older brother Terence is currently earning at Feyenoord.

    Incredibly, there is also another Kongolo borther training with Feyenoord, 9-year-old Fidel.

    Rodney Kongolo has been compared to Patrick Vieira in some sections of the European press.

    Might go in to our u18 considering how strong it is, with an odd apperance in the u21's if he is doing good :) Something close to the role of Tasende probably

    Well all the media outlets were claiming so in the middle of March but it's gone quiet since. Would he be under any sort of contract at 16 in Holland so we can't complete or announce until the end of June? (or is it July?).

    Just figured I'd bump this to confirm that yes he did. He was with the other youngsters from the academy who signed professional terms last week.

    Think about the players city will have in 5 years time: Kongolo, Brahim, Faour, Lopes, Cole, Ambrose, Denayer, Iheanacho

    Time to get that roll of tissue paper...
