Girona swoop for Nigerian star?

Girona will reportedly sign Larry Kayode on loan once Manchester City buy the Austria Vienna striker outright.

According to the Nigerian Press and Sky Sport Austria, Kayode will sign a five-year contract with City, before being sent to Girona for the 2017-18 campaign.

The 24-year-old would have already undergone a medical with the English giants and is therefore expected in Spain over the weekend.

Kayode netted 17 goals in the Austrian top flight last season and was crowned both its top scorer and best player.

He also found the back of the net twice in the 16-17 Europa League group stage and has two caps for Nigeria.

Kayode had also been linked with Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle United but is likely to become the next player that joins Girona as part of their agreement with City.
