Rodney Kongolo swapped Rotterdam for Manchester when he joined City from Feyenoord in 2014.
One of three footballing brothers, the 16-year-old aims to follow in the footsteps of elder sibling Terence, who was included in the Netherlands’ 2014 World Cup squad.
After making his youth international debut for the Oranje U15s, Rodney has gone on to represent his country at every level through to U20s.
A central midfielder who has been likened to Patrick Vieira in style the Dutchman has impressed for both City U18s and the Elite Development Squad in a box-to-box role and in a more defensive position.
An FA Youth Cup runner-up in 2016, he captained Simon Davies' EDS to second place in the Premier League 2 last season, scoring four times in 19 appearances.
He will spend 2017/18 on loan at Doncaster Rovers in League One.
