City sign Spurs' Harrison on one-year loan

English youth international Shayon Harrison has joined the A-League's Melbourne City on a one-year loan from Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur.

Melbourne City have signed Tottenham youngster Shayon Harrison on a one-year loan deal at the A-League club.

The English youth international will join fellow new signing Jamie Maclaren at Bundoora after the Socceroos striker's arrival on a three-and-a-half year deal was announced on Friday.


Harrison made one senior appearance for Spurs, against Liverpool in an English League Cup match at Anfield in 2016, and has made 50 appearances for Tottenham's Premier League 2 side as well as stints on loan with Yeovil Town and Southend United.

The 21-year-old also trained with the England squad before the UEFA Euro 2016 tournament.

Melbourne City coach Warren Joyce said: "He's a young player with pace and creativity and a bright future ahead of him.

"Shayon's energy and talent will give the boys a good lift for the back half of the season and we're confident we have the right environment to allow him to continue his impressive development this season."

Harrison will join the rest of the City squad in preparation for City's clash with Adelaide next Saturday.
