Manchester City have re-signed Angelino after activating a buy-back clause in the young Spaniard’s contract with Dutch side PSV Eindhoven.

The 22-year-old full-back returns to the Etihad Stadium just a year after leaving for PSV. Angelino spent five years in his first spell at City after signing from Deportivo La Coruna in 2013.

"I am thrilled to have rejoined City, a side playing incredible football under Pep Guardiola," Angelino said.

"Watching them while playing in Holland has been a pleasure.

"City's performances over the last two seasons have been incredible and I am very excited about returning and contributing to the club's bid for more success.

"I believe my own game can develop under Pep's management and I am very confident that the club will go from strength to strength over the next few years."

Left-back has been a problem position for Pep Guardiola, with Benjamin Mendy having been hampered by injury since arriving from Monaco two years ago.

Midfielders Fabian Delph and Oleksandr Zinchenko have often been asked to fill in for Mendy, as has centre-back Aymeric Laporte.

Angelino made just three senior appearances during his first spell at City but was an ever-present for PSV in the Eredivisie last season, leading to interest from Paris Saint-Germain, who were reportedly prepared to pay £15m for him this summer.
