Huesca sign talented Manchester City midfielder on loan

La Liga strugglers Huesca might have helped inject some confidence into their squad after signing highly-rated midfielder Yangel Herrera from Manchester City on loan.

The deal will last until the end of the season and the club based in the autonomous community of Aragon battle for survival and avoid being relegated one year after securing promotion.

The Venezuelan joined the reigning champions of England for un unknown fee in February 2017 from Atlético Venezuela.

The 21-year-old has since spent the previous two years playing in MLS with New York City FC where he gained a reputation for his tough tackling and tenacity.

Herrera played 35 times in NYC, scoring one goal, catching the eye of several European clubs in the process.

Despite the interest, the City group see potential in the youngster and have decided to keep him on their books, as he could become the eventual replacement for Fernandinho.

He had spent the last month training at City, following the end of the MLS campaign in December and can now start to get minutes under his belt in La Liga.

The most impressive thing about Herrera was the fact that he captained his country to a silver medal in the U-20 World Cup and has since gone on to earn eight caps for Venezuela, scoring once.
