Manchester City loan United States international Erik Palmer-Brown to NAC Breda

United States international Erik Palmer-Brown has been loaned from Manchester City to Eredivisie side NAC Breda for the upcoming 2018-19 season, the club have announced.

Palmer-Brown spent the second half of the 2017-18 campaign on loan with KV Kortrijk after joining City in the January transfer window from Sporting Kansas City.

The 21-year-old made nine appearances for Kortrijk in the Belgian first division and has two senior-team appearances with the United States.

Following the move, Palmer-Brown told the club's website he was thrilled to be joining the team and said he felt the style of play for both Breda and in the Eredivisie in general would suit his style of play.

Breda technical director Hans Smulders said the club targeted Palmer-Brown to solidify their central defence and were especially enamoured with his ability to help link play from the back into the midfield.
