Spanish professional footballer Angelino has finally completed his permanent move to German side Leipzig on a permanent basis from Premier League giants Manchester City.

The 24-year-old has for the past two seasons been playing on loan for Leipzig due to lack of active playing time he was unable to get under Pep Guardiola at the Etihad stadium.

According to the report on UK Sun, Angelino cost RB Leipzig a bargain £15.8million fee and his contract at the club will last until 2025.

He has also been impressive so far this season making 29 appearances so far in all competitions for the German giants.
