Take a look at career of new signing from Manchester City

Following the news that George Glendon has made his move to Highbury permanent after a successful loan from Manchester City, here’s everything you need to know about the 21-year-old.

‘Glenno’ had spent the entirety of his career at Manchester City, having joined as a youngster at just the age of five, and remains a devoted fan.


Whilst Glendon never made a first team appearance for the Premier League side, the midfielder did manage to get on the bench for City’s Champions League 3-2 home win in November 2014 against Bayern Munich.

He impressed for the Citizens’ development and U21 squads, having captained both, whilst also being called up for England U16s and U17s in 2011.

The centre midfielder stands at 5’10” (177cm) and is described as a diminutive but deceptively strong midfielder.

Glendon joined the Cod Army on loan in the summer of 2016, taking the number 18 shirt.

He made his debut for the club in a 1-0 win against Blackburn Rovers in the EFL Trophy, coming off the bench to replace Eggert Jonsson, whilst his first start for Town came in the same competition in a 4-2 defeat away to Carlisle.

His impressive performances over December earned him the Fleetwood Town fans Player of the Month with a massive 62.5% of the votes, and has been an important part of the Cod Army’s 12 match unbeaten run.
