Manchester City have signed teenager Ante Palaversa from Hajduk Split, with the midfielder immediately rejoining the Croatian side on loan.

The 18-year-old completed a medical in Manchester this week and has moved for a reported fee of £7million.

Hajduk have announced Palaversa will return to them on loan until the end of the 2019-20 season, although City can recall him next January.

The Croatia Under-19 international is happy to stay with his boyhood club ahead of linking up with “one of the biggest clubs in the world”.

“Thanks to Manchester City for the trust,” he told Hajduk’s website.

“There is still a lot of work ahead of me. I have not yet shown all I can and I hope to play for Hajduk to justify the great trust I have received from England’s champions.”

Peter Crouch is to undergo a medical at Burnley as he closes in on a permanent switch from Stoke.

It is understood the veteran striker, who turned 38 on Wednesday, is poised to make the deadline-day move, while fellow striker Sam Vokes goes the other way.

Crouch has played 23 times in the Sky Bet Championship this season, starting only twice and scoring once. He also scored against Shrewsbury in the FA Cup third round.

The former Liverpool and Tottenham player, who netted 22 goals in 45 England appearances, has been with Stoke since the summer of 2011.

As well as the Potters, Reds and Spurs, he has also featured in the Premier League for Aston Villa, Southampton and Portsmouth, and his overall record in the division is 108 goals in 462 games.

Wales international Vokes has scored three goals in 20 Premier League outings this term, 10 of which have been starts.

The 29-year-old joined Burnley from Wolves in 2012, having already had a loan spell at Turf Moor.
