Manchester City striker Enes Unal set for Genk loan move - sources

Manchester City are to send summer signing Enes Unal to Belgian club Genk on loan next season, sources have told ESPN FC.

City signed Unal from Bursaspor in a £2 million deal earlier this summer, but fear he is unlikely to gain a work permit.

The 18-year-old has won one cap for Turkey and is unlikely to fit the criteria for a permit under new FA rules.

City are now prepared to send him out on loan until he qualifies, and Genk have agreed a deal.

Unal has impressed on City's tour of Australia and is seen as a star of the future at the Etihad Stadium.

At the age of 16, he became the youngest player to score in the Turkish Super Lig when he struck as a substitute in a 1-1 draw with Galatasaray in August 2013.
