Check out how City's young players are doing on loan in Europe and further afield...

The winger notched a hat-trick of assists and scored one himself in a 4-0 win whilst playing for the Celtic U20s.
Roberts capped of his outstanding performance against Motherwell by turning sharply in the box and firing a shot beyond the despairing goalkeeper. It was a day to remember for the teenager who celebrated his 19th birthday on the same day!
