Sport In Sancho's footsteps – Bynoe-Gittens swaps Man City for Borussia Dortmund
Manchester United eye Gareth Bale on loan as Jadon Sancho hopes fade
Gareth Bale is one of several options on the table with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer determined to bring in a right-sided forward before the transfer window closes next month. If United go for Bale they are likely to propose a loan which would allow them to try again for Sancho at the end of the season. © Provided by Daily Mail © Provided by Daily Mail A move to Old Trafford appeals to the Welshman although he would prefer a longer deal that means he wouldn't be in the same situation at the age of 32 next summer.
Borussia Dortmund have signed 16-year-old forward Jamie Bynoe-Gittens from Manchester City on a long-term contract.
Sporting director Michael Zorc confirmed the arrival of the City academy player, who has been capped by England at Under-17 level, during a media conference on Thursday.
Bynoe-Gittens follows in the footsteps of Jadon Sancho, who was 17 when he left the Premier League giants for Dortmund in 2017.
Sancho may leave someday, but he is happy at Dortmund - Kehl
A new challenge may someday tempt Jadon Sancho away from Borussia Dortmund, but Sebastian Kehl insists he is happy at the club for now.Sancho has been heavily linked with Manchester United but the Premier League club have reportedly not met the €120million (£108m) asking price for the England forward.
Sancho departed City for a clearer path to first-team football and has become of the hottest properties in Europe after scoring 30 goals and setting up another 35 in 79 Bundesliga appearances.
"Jamie Bynoe-Gittens has joined us, and we are delighted to have him at in our youth set-up. He will initially play with the Under-19s," said Zorc.
"Our scouting department have done a fantastic job! He is a highly talented wide player, who will get the chance to develop at his own pace in our youth teams.
"We don't want expectations to be raised too high right from the start.
"He is still a year younger than Jadon was then … the hope is that at some point he will be promoted to the professional team."
Bynoe-Gittens becomes the third Englishman in Dortmund's ranks, alongside Sancho and 17-year-old playmaker Jude Bellingham.
