Manchester City winger leaves club on permanent transfer after three-year stay



| Last Updated:


Following a three-year stay at Manchester City, Morgan Rogers has left the club on a permanent transfer confirmed by all parties earlier this week.

After a nine-year spell developing at The Hawthorns with West Bromwich Albion, Rogers originally made the move to Manchester in the summer of 2020, after starring against the north-west club in the semi-finals of the FA Youth Cup.

An impressive loan spell with Lincoln City would follow his arrival at the Etihad Stadium, before other temporary spells at AFC Bournemouth and most recently Blackpool, before securing his next permanent step in professional football.

At just 20-years-old, Morgan Rogers will almost certainly feel that his best years are ahead of him, and the move to the Riverside Stadium presents a fantastic opportunity to star for a club chasing Premier League promotion under head coach Michael Carrick.

What are the terms of Morgan Rogers’ Middlesbrough deal?

Morgan Rogers has signed a four-year contract at the Riverside Stadium, joining Middlesbrough for an undisclosed fee from Manchester City.

It currently remains unknown as to whether the Premier League champions have included any clauses into the deal to sell Rogers to the Championship club.

Who else was interested in Morgan Rogers?

City Xtra understand that Rogers was being chased by a number of EFL Championship clubs, however a permanent deal involving Blackpool – his most recent loan club – was not on the cards due to financial constraints involved.

How have Middlesbrough described their new signing?

“Boro have swooped to land Manchester City youngster Morgan Rogers in a permanent transfer. The 20-year-old attacking player arrives on Teesside signing a four-year contract. Morgan has represented England’s youth sides up to Under-20 level, and has gained senior experience in loan spells with Lincoln City, Bournemouth and Blackpool. 

“Quick, skilful and powerful, he is Boro’s latest attacking recruit, following the signings of Alex Gilbert and Sammy Silvera.”

Everyone at City Xtra would like to wish Morgan the very best in the future!
