Newly promoted Eredivisie side NAC Breda have announced the signing of three Manchester City prospects on loan for next season.

Thierry Ambrose, Paolo Fernandes and Pablo Marí will play for them in the upcoming season and will cement City's relationship with NAC Breda. Last year the Dutch side gained promotion with a number of City starlets in their side. Now in the top flight, Breda will hope this trio of City youngsters can help maintain their place in the first division.

The name most City supporters would be aware of is Thierry Ambrose. The French striker might be the youngster with the brightest future, though injuries have hurt his development in the past.

Pablo Fernandes is an 18-year-old Spanish winger who had a wonderful season in the Premier League 2 and UEFA Youth League last season. Contributing 13 goals and 7 assists in the youth level, Fernandes will have his first taste of senior football with NAC Breda.

Pablo Marí is the oldest of the bunch at 23 and didn't have the best time with another City linked club, Girona. The defender was signed by City last August but the intention was always to loan the youngster out. It’ll be interesting to track how he does in the Dutch top flight next year.
