Man City 'break British transfer record' to sign 15-year-old Leeds midfielder

Last updated : 13 November 2023 By .

City are set to buy the teen midfielder in a record-breaking deal for a player his age, worth seven figures.

Gorman is still on schoolboy terms with Leeds and will not be offered a professional contract until his 17th birthday. And having only just turned 15, this will not be until September 2025.

Born in 2008, Gorman is an attacking midfielder who operates on the right wing for the Whites.

He is regarded as one of the club's most exciting young talents after making his England U16s debut earlier this season when he was still 14 years old.

He also holds the record of being the youngest player to score twice in a Premier League U18 fixture, at 14 years and 326 days.

In recent months many videos of the Leeds starlet have gone viral on social media showcasing his incredible skill.
