Preston North End boss Alex Neil said: “We have been targeting this for a while now. I believe we have signed one of the brightest centre forwards in the country at his age group.
“Manchester City have got really high hopes for him. He has spent the last six months training with their first team and we have managed to persuade him that the next stage of his development is to come and play for Preston North End.
“I think it a huge compliment of what we are trying to do and hopefully this will be a mutually beneficial move for both parties.”
