Just like older brother Lukas, Felix Nmecha was born in Germany, grew up in England and has earned international recognition with England U16s.
A midfielder with eight years’ experience in the City Academy, he’ll provide competition in the U18’s engine room this season.
Not content to leave the goalscoring exploits to his older brother, Felix began the 2017/18 campaign with an impressive strike ratio from midfield.
He was on the mark with a fine curling effort in the 4-1 win against Wolves in August and this was followed by a stellar showing as he netted a hat-trick to inspire the young Blues to a 5-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers.
Performances like these made it no surprise to see Felix on the cusp of a first-team debut, with the 18-year-old named on the bench for the Champions League group stage tie against Hoffenheim, and the Carabao Cup quarter-final clash with Leicester City.
But it was the latter competition in which he made his first senior appearance, coming on as a second-half substitute in our 1-0 win in the second leg of our Carabao Cup semi-final against Burton Albion.
