Manchester City full-back Angelino joins Bundesliga leaders RB Leipzig on loan until the end of the season.

RB Leipzig have completed a deal to sign Manchester City full-back Angelino on loan until the end of the season.

City exercised their £5m buy-back clause in Angelino's contract last summer to bring the defender back to the Etihad Stadium, but he had made just four Premier League starts this season.

Benjamin Mendy, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Joao Cancelo were all above Angelino in the left-back pecking order, opening the door for the 23-year-old to leave the club on deadline day.

The deal is thought to include a €30m (£25.2m) option to buy at the end of the campaign, putting City on course for a potential profit of around £20m on the player.

Angelino joins a Leipzig side currently sitting top of the Bundesliga table, sitting one point clear of Bayern Munich.
