Feyenoord reach agreement with Manchester City over goalkeeper transfer



| Last Updated:


Manchester City will bid farewell to yet another youth academy talent this summer, after reaching an agreement with Feyenoord for goalkeeper Mikki van Sas.

The teenage goalkeeping talent first joined Manchester City’s academy system in the summer of 2020, making the switch to England from FC Utrecht and the Dutch side’s respective under-18 squad.

Across Manchester City’s Premier League 2 winning campaign of the 2022/23 season, Van Sas registered a total of 15 appearances for the club whilst keeping seven clean sheets in the process.

However, now in the search of a fresh challenge and attracting interest from a number of clubs back home, Mikki Van Sas has opted to leave the ongoing project in Manchester City’s youth system, and agreed to a deal to join an Eredivisie side.

According to the information of Fabrizio Romano, Dutch side Feyenoord have now reached an agreement with Manchester City for the permanent transfer of 19-year-old goalkeeping talent Mikki van Sas.

It is further detailed that alongside an agreement over a permanent transfer, Manchester City will also include a sell-on clause into the deal, while the player himself now has a medical booked for this Friday and a contract with his prospective new club until June 2026.

Van Sas will follow in the footsteps of fellow Manchester City academy teammate Carlos Borges, who agreed to a similar move from the City Football Academy to the Eredivisie earlier this summer.

In a move understood to be worth an initial €14 million, Portugal youth international Borges brought an end to his Manchester City career by joining Ajax, in a move that was just one of many exits from the club’s academy ranks.

All of James Trafford, Shea Charles, and Adedire Mebude have completed permanent exits from the Etihad Stadium, with their respective deals featuring favourable clauses in the direction of their now former club Manchester City.
