Jadon Sancho: Borussia Dortmund's ex

- City were extremely keen to keep the hugely talented English forward but Sancho - concerned about his first-team prospects - signed for German side Borussia Dortmund for a reported £8m on 31 August.

- "To play for the first team, in front of the yellow wall, is a dream come true," Sancho told BBC Sport.

- Sancho was spotted by Watford at the age of seven and two years later registered with them as a player.

- Aged 12, Sancho left his family to stay in 'digs' at the Harefield Academy in Uxbridge so he could devote as much time as possible to his football.

- It is the sort of ability that caught the eye at the Under-17 World Cup in India last year before Dortmund called Sancho back to Germany at the end of the group stage.
