City on Adarabioyo:

An u18s regular since making his debut at the tender age of 14, England youth international Tosin Adarabioyo signed his first professional contract with City upon turning  17 in September 2014.

A strong and confident centre-back, the 16-year-old Mancunian celebrated penning his deal with a brace away to Liverpool the following week.

Excellent on the ball, the defender possesses good positional awareness and leadership skills – recognised by boss Jason Wilcox, who appointed him u18 skipper as a first year scholar at the start of the 2014/15 campaign.

After making 17 appearances as part of the u18 squad that clinched the Premier League North Division title in 2013/14, Tosin wore the captain’s armband 13 times for Jason Wilcox’s squad during his first year as a scholar, while also turning out seven times for the EDS against players up to four years his senior.

An ever-present in last term’s UEFA Youth League campaign, Tosin was a key part of a stingy back line that conceded just four goals to help City to a 100% record in the group stages.

Now promoted to Patrick Vieira’s EDS set-up full-time, the 17-year-old will be aiming to continue his steady progress on the domestic and European stage.
