Sydney - Premier League giants Manchester City have agreed terms for the transfer of Australian A-League star Anthony Caceres, his club Central Coast Mariners said Friday.
"The Central Coast Mariners can today confirm that the club has agreed to terms with English Premier League club Manchester City for the transfer of 23-year-old midfielder Anthony Caceres that will take immediate effect," the club said on their website.
Caceres made 62 appearances for the Mariners following his A-League debut in 2012.
Coach Tony Walmsley said he was looking forward to seeing him reach his potential on the world stage.
"We need to celebrate when players at the Central Coast Mariners are sold to bigger clubs. It's our charter. It's our intent," Walmsley said.
"This move demonstrates how far Anthony has progressed and symbolises how giving youth a chance works for both the Central Coast Mariners and young aspirational footballers."
