Man City sign Doku from Rennes in £55.5m deal

Manchester City have signed winger Jeremy Doku from Rennes in a £55.5m deal.

The Belgium international has signed a five-year deal with the Premier League champions.

The 21-year-old is seen as a replacement for Riyad Mahrez, who joined Saudi Arabian side Al Ahli for £30m last month.

Doku had been linked with a number of Premier League teams this summer, with West Ham having a bid rejected for him earlier this month.

"Manchester City are the best team in world football, so to be joining them is something very special for me and my family," Doku told the Man City website.

"I am a young player with so much learning and improving to do. Working with Pep and his staff, and playing alongside these work-class players, will make me a much better player. I feel sure of that."
