Manchester City winger Patrick Roberts will spend the season in Spain on loan at Girona.

Signed from Fulham in 2015 for a fee rising to £11million, the 21-year-old has spent the previous two-and-a-half years collecting trophies aplenty on loan at Celtic.

Roberts has been linked with a return to Glasgow but will instead spend the 2018-19 campaign with Girona in LaLiga.

A City statement announcing the move read: "The 21-year-old's move to Girona will see him test himself in LaLiga, one of the world's most technical leagues, which the club feels is the ideal next stage in his development.

"Everyone at City wishes Patrick all the best during his time in Girona."

Girona are part of the City Football Group and Roberts follows Aleix Garcia in making the temporary switch there from the Etihad Stadium.

New Arsenal head coach Unai Emery will be hoping Aaron Ramsey is fit for his first game in charge as Premier League champions Manchester City visit the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Ramsey, whose contract expires at the end of the season, suffered a slight calf injury but has returned to training and could be fit to take his place in the Gunners side.

Sead Kolasinac (knee) and Laurent Koscielny (Achilles) are definitely out as summer arrivals Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi all push to make their competitive debuts.

Midfielders Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are back in contention for Manchester City's Premier League opener at Arsenal.

The pair missed the Community Shield last week after returning to training late following the World Cup. Playmaker David Silva could also feature after sitting out at Wembley and goalkeeper Ederson will return.

Forward Riyad Mahrez could make his league debut for the club following his £60million summer move from Leicester.

Wolves have failed in their attempt to sign Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City.

The club had agreed a £16million fee with City but the wing-back was reluctant to make the move, Press Association Sport understands.

Ambitious Wolves had been hoping to convince him to move to Molineux but Zinchenko is now likely to remain at the Etihad Stadium for now.

The clubs had struck a deal a number of weeks ago with Zinchenko likely to be down the pecking order at City.

He made 14 appearances for Pep Guardiola's side last season when Fabian Delph and Benjamin Mendy were out injured.

Manchester City have announced the signing of 19-year-old Australian Daniel Arzani from their partner club Melbourne City.

Arzani was the youngest player at the 2018 World Cup. He came on as a substitute for the Socceroos in all three group games, including against eventual champions France.

The attacking midfielder is now poised to leave the Premier League champions on a loan deal.

Premier League clubs cannot recruit players on loan after Thursday's summer transfer deadline, so City appear to be suggesting a move abroad.

City signed Riyad Mahrez from Leicester for £60million and emerging prospects Claudio Gomes, from Paris St Germain, and Philippe Sandler from PEC Zwolle.

Burnley sign Hart amid goalkeeper injury crisis

Burnley have signed goalkeeper Joe Hart on a two-year deal from Manchester City.

The Clarets confirmed the transfer on their official website, revealing an undisclosed fee had been paid for the former England number one.

Manager Sean Dyche was not expecting to be in the market for a goalkeeper this summer but injuries to Nick Pope and Tom Heaton - both England internationals in their own right - forced his hand.

Hart spent 12 years as a City player but went from undisputed first-choice to fringe player after Pep Guardiola's arrival and spent the last two seasons on loan with Torino and West Ham.

The 31-year-old ultimately lost his place in England's World Cup squad too, edged out by Jordan Pickford, Jack Butland and Pope for a place in Gareth Southgate's plans this summer.

Hart, who boasts 75 international caps and two Premier League titles, will wear squad number 20.
