Manchester City keep making moves in a busy January transfer window. While Pep Guardiola has only brought Gabriel Jesus into the first team and no real transfers are expected for the big boys, City's young loanees continue to move around the world.

The latest to move is EDS defender James Horsfield:

"Manchester City youngster James Horsfield has signed a one-year contract extension that will see him remain at the Club until June 2018 and joined NAC Breda on loan until the end of the season.

"The 21-year-old, who played three games on loan at Doncaster Rovers last season, will join fellow Blues Ash Smith-Brown, Brandon Barker, Thomas Agyepong and Manu Garcia at the Dutch side."

Horsfield is one of the best young players in the City EDS, and his ability to play as a fullback or a central defender will certainly give him some minutes with Guardiola once he returns from his loan. He trained with Pep during the preseason tour in China, and has made some good appearances for the youth squad.

Good luck, James!
