Sandler made 30 appearances for PEC Zwolle

Manchester City have signed defender Philippe Sandler from Dutch side PEC Zwolle.

Sandler, who has been capped by the Netherlands at under-20 level, is a product of the Ajax youth system.

The 21-year old centre-back can also play in a holding midfield role.

He is Pep Guardiola’s third summer signing following the arrivals of Riyad Mahrez for £60m from Leicester City and 18-year old French midfielder Claudio Gomes from PSG.

The Premier League champions did not give details of the length of Sandler’s contract or a fee for his transfer.
