The 19-year-old Burkina Faso right-back enjoyed a breakout season in Belgium, featuring five times for the club's first-team in the Jupiler Pro League, and the Citizens have moved quickly to secure his services with a five-year deal.

However, the former Rahimo FC teenager is set to remain on-loan at Mechelen to continue his development before joining up with Pep Guardiola's first-team squad in the 2021/22 campaign.
