Laporte announces Man City exit ahead of Saudi move

Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte has announced his departure from the club in a video on social media.

Laporte has reportedly agreed to join Al-Nassr after five-and-a-half-years in England.

The Spain international will become the latest high-profile player to sign for a Saudi Pro League club, with ex-City team-mate Riyad Mahrez among them after making the move to Al-Ahli last month.

"Dear Cityzens, today I wanted to share a story with you," Laporte said in a video on Twitter that went on to show a highlights reel of his time at Man City.

"This is now our history. Thank you and see you really soon."

Centre-back Laporte added in his social-media post: "It has lasted for five-and-a-half unforgettable years.

"Plenty of memories that I will keep forever close to my heart."
