Crawley Town Football Club have completed the loan signing of highly-rated midfielder Michael Dacosta González from AFC Bournemouth.

The 19-year-old has signed with the Reds until the end of the season.

Dacosta was born in Alicante and began his career in the academy of local side Alicante CF. The youngster has an impressive story as his parents moved to England and quickly settled in London, where he played for a number of grassroots teams before his family moved again, to Portsmouth. While playing for another grassroots team in Portsmouth, he was offered a trial at professional side Bournemouth, who signed him after just four weeks.

He said: “I am very excited to have joined Crawley. It’s my first loan, so I am excited to get the deal sorted. I would like to thank the Manager for putting his trust in me. I was supposed to do pre-season with Bournemouth, but the loan opportunity was too good to turn down, so I am here now, and I can’t wait to get started and get playing.”
