Having enjoyed success on loan with PSV over the past couple of seasons it was thought Karim Rekik could have a long-term future at the Etihad Stadium but this isn’t going to be the case.

Another exit was today confirmed but this time the 20-year-old isn’t coming back as he’s left City for Marseille on a permanent basis.

During his time at the club, with him signed from Feyenoord in 2011, the defender only made two first-team appearances with loans at Portsmouth and Blackburn bringing about another dozen appearances in the English game.

The past two seasons saw him a regular with PSV with him part of the Eredivisie title winning side but the Dutch international, who made his international bow ahead of last summer’s World Cup Finals – he was a provisional member of that squad, will now try his luck in France with Marseille.

All being well, despite some uncertainty recently, we’ll start seeing the high profile arrivals coming through the Etihad gates as those that we’re looking to offload continue to go the other way….
