Ntcham’s move to Glasgow has happened quickly, little more than a day after various newspapers reported that Brendan Rodgers wanted the French youth international, who has spent the last two years on loan at Genoa.
The 21-year-old was spotted arriving in Glasgow yesterday and underwent a medical, with only an official announcement missing.
The fee has been reported to be £4million, but the word from Nabil Djellit is that it is a £7million deal, which would be quite a figure for a player who has not gotten anywhere near City’s first team. It’s possible that this could be £4million up-front with add-ons, which would link the two reported fees together.
