City quartet join Girona on loan

Manchester City quarter Douglas Luiz, Pablo Maffeo, Aleix Garcia and Marlos Moreno have completed season-long loan deals to La Liga side Girona.

Maffeo, 20, made 27 appearances for the Catalan side across two previous loan stints but will now play an entire campaign at Estadi Montilivi.

20-year-old Garcia, who started his career at Villarreal, made eight appearances for City including  starting the 2-2 draw at Middlesbrough in the Premier League in April and netted in the League Cup 2-1 win over Swansea in September.

Colombian international Moreno made 22 appearances on loan at Deportivo La Coruna last season.

Douglas Luiz joined City from Vasco de Gama this summer in a deal reported to be in the region of €12m after starring for Brazil for the South American Under-20 Championship at the start of the year.

“Girona will give Douglas the perfect opportunity to develop at the top level of the European game,” said City sporting director Txiki Begiristain.

“We’re all excited about seeing him develop in La Liga, and send our best wishes to him for the coming season.”
