Razak departs and Henshall out on loan

Ivory Coast international midfielder Abdul Razak has joined Anzhi on a permanent basis.

Due to the terms of the deal that took Abdul to Russia initially on loan, his transfer became permanent after his first appearance against CSKA at the end of September.

Razak joined City from Crystal Palace in 2010 and was fast tracked into the first-team set up by Roberto Mancini in 2011.

February 2011’s 3-0 Premier League win over West Brom saw Abdul make his debut as a late substitute in place of David Silva.

His final appearance in a sky blue shirt came against Manchester United for the EDS in the Lancashire Senior Cup final in August.

Everyone at the club would like to wish Abdul all the best in his future career.

In other news, Alex Henshall has agreed to join Bristol Rovers on a one month emergency loan.


The City EDS winger has yet to feature in the Barclays u21 Premier League this season after sustaining a minor injury knock in the early weeks of the season.

This move to Bristol Rovers marks Alex’s second loan spell after the 19-year old spent three months on loan at Chesterfield at the end of last season.

He made seven appearances for the Spireites last season, making his full debut against Aldershot in February 2013.

Henshall has represented England at under-16 and under-17 level and joins a Bristol Rovers team that lies in 20th place in League Two.

Alex is due to return to City on 16 November.
