Werribee City’s 16-year-old winger Yasin Nur has secured a youth contract with Melbourne City for their upcoming National Youth League season.

The teenager made his league debut in the season gone bye at the tender age of 15-year-old, having worked his way through the youth system at Galvin Park since the age of 10.

Nur was one of three players younger than 16-years-old given a chance within the senior squad as the Bees embarked on a first campaign in the second-tier of the NPL after suffering relegation in 2015.

The left sided midfielder made four appearances, including a home start handed to him by coach Serge Sabbadini, in a 3-1 loss to Goulburn Valley Suns.

“Yasin has developed into a very talented and exciting left-sided player and the club is very proud to have contributed to his development throughout his six years at WCFC,” the club said in a press release.

“The club fully supports Yasin’s move to Melbourne City and sees this as another step in his progression as a footballer.

“The club wishes Yasin all the best as he sets off on this exciting journey and we look forward to hopefully seeing Yasin one day soon playing in the A-League and representing the WCFC football community.”

Nur’s departure has been offset by the signing of former Moreland Zebras midfielder and Werribee local Bradley Murray, with further signings promised by the club in the coming weeks.

He’ll look to get in the thick of the action as City launch their NYL campaign at CB Smith Reserve to take on Adelaide United next Saturday.
