City EDS playmaker Denis Suarez has completed his transfer to FC Barcelona.
Signed from Celta Vigo in May 2011, Denis made just two appearances for the Blues in his two years at the club.
A regular for City’s Elite Development Squad over the past couple of seasons, the 19-year old made his first-team debut as a 67th minute substitute in October 2011’s 5-2 win over Wolves in the League Cup.
His only other appearance for City was in the 4-2 defeat to Aston Villa in the third round of last year’s Capital One Cup.
In 2012, Suarez was named City’s Young Player of the Year for his performances at under-21 level and went on to feature in the 2013 pre-season tour matches against Supersport United and AmaZulu FC.
Suarez also took part in last summer’s FIFA under-20 World Cup, helping Spain to the quarter-finals of the competition.
He’s expected to join up with Eusebio Sacristan’s Barcelona B selection for their 2013/14 Segunda División campaign.
Everyone at the club wishes Denis the best of luck in his future career.
