Man City send new signing Enes Unal to Genk on loan

Manchester City have sent teenage striker Enes Unal out on loan to Belgian side Genk just weeks after signing the Turkey international from Bursaspor.

Unal, 18, made three appearances during City's pre-season tour of Australia but will head to Belgium in the hope of playing regular football this season.

Pellegrini concerned over Delph injury

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini expects to know the severity of Fabian Delph's hamstring injury on Saturday after the midfielder left the field on a stretcher during the 4-1 pre-season defeat to Real Madrid.

Delph, who signed from Aston Villa after making a U-turn over his switch to City last week, lasted less than 20 minutes after a tussle with Luka Modric resulted in his early exit from the International Champions Cup game in Melbourne.

City will now face an anxious wait to determine the severity of the injury to their £8million signing, with their opening Barclays Premier League match against West Brom just over two weeks away.

"Unfortunately, it looks like Fabian has a problem with his hamstring - we thought it would be useful for him to play 45 minutes but he got the injury so it's not the best news," Pellegrini told the club's official website.

"We will have a more clear diagnostic from the doctor tomorrow."

Sterling scores on Manchester City debut

Raheem Sterling scored less than three minutes into his Manchester City debut in a pre-season friendly in Australia.

The England forward, signed from Liverpool for £49million after an acrimonious transfer saga, found the net after just two minutes and 17 seconds against Roma at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

The goal contributed to an entertaining contest in the International Champions Cup, which City went on to win 5-4 on penalties after a 2-2 draw at the end of 90 minutes.

Sterling's first touch in the game was inauspicious as he fell over the ball in the first minute but he more than made amends soon after. The 20-year-old raced onto a chipped through-ball from Kelechi Iheanacho and finished coolly with a low shot.
