Ex Manchester City young star Jeremy Wisten has reportedly took his life.

Wisten, who played as a centre-back, was born in Malawi and joined City’s Elite Squad at U13 level in 2016. He reportedly took his own life due to depression on the back of being released by the club at the age of just 17.

We send our deepest condolences to his friends and family. Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time “
