Manchester City have re-signed left back Angelino from PSV Eindhoven a year after they sold him to the Dutch club, the Premier League champions said on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old Spanish defender has signed a four-year contract which will keep him at the club until 2023, with British media reporting City activated a 5.3 million pounds ($6.67 million) buy-back clause in his contract.

"I am thrilled to have rejoined City, a side playing incredible football under Pep Guardiola," Angelino said in a statement "Watching them while playing in Holland has been a pleasure.

"City's performances over the last two seasons have been incredible and I am very excited about returning and contributing to the club's bid for more success."

He did not make a single league appearance for City during his first stint but made more than 40 appearances for PSV.

Angelino's signing follows the announcement of City paying the 70 million euro ($78.96 million) buyout clause for Spanish international holding midfielder Rodri.
