Angelino rejoins RB Leipzig on loan from Manchester City

RB Leipzig have completed the signing of Angelino from Manchester City, the Spanish wing-back rejoining Julian Nagelsmann's side on loan with an option to make the deal permanent next summer.

Angelino spent the second half of last season on loan at Leipzig from Pep Guardiola's Man City, impressing down die Roten Bullen's left-hand side.

The 23-year-old chipped in with five assists from 18 games in all competitions, helping Leipzig to a third-place finish domestically as well as into the UEFA Champions League semi-finals - the latter a club first.

"I'm delighted to be staying in Leipzig and that we carry on our journey together," Angelino said. "My first six months with RBL have been amazing; I got lots of game time straightaway and I really like the coach and the team's approach.

"We also had really successful Bundesliga and Champions League campaigns. I'm very much looking forward to the future and lots more success."

Angelino could next feature for Leipzig as soon as Saturday 12 September, with the Saxony club kicking off their DFB Cup campaign at Nürnberg.
