City confirm extension of midfielder’s loan

Melbourne City have confirmed that it has extended the loan deal of midfielder Luke Brattan for a further season.

The former Brisbane Roar star is currently on loan from parent club Manchester City. 

Brattan, 27, made 26 appearances for City during the 2016/17 Hyundai A-League season, and debuted for the club in the Round of 32 FFA Cup match against Floreat Athena in August last year.

The midfielder led his side’s tally for chances created and crosses during his first season back in Australia and played an important role in City’s 2016 Westfield FFA Cup success, scoring in City’s 2-0 Semi Final win over Melbourne Victory. 

City tackle Peninsula Power in the FFA Cup Round of 32 on Tuesday night.
