City on Bytyqi:

Sinan Bytyqi is a versatile forward, equally adept at playing on the wings or in behind the main striker and from his style of play, it's easy to see why he considers Barcelona striker Neymar as his idol.

An Austrian youth international, Bytyqi made his debut in City's successful Al Ain International Football tournament campaign in 2012.

Sinan signed for City in 2012 from Admira Wacker - he was spotted playing for his country against Denmark in a youth international fixture.

In 2013/14, Bytyqi was a regular starter for Patrick Vieira's EDS and he struck up a fantastic connection with Marcos Lopes, with the pair combining for many goals in an excellent season at youth level for the Blues.

No-one played more times for the EDS than Sinan in 2013/14 - he played 35 games, scoring seven goals in all competitions.

He signed off on his campaign in memorable style with a debut for the first-team in the 3-0 post-season friendly win over Al Ain in UAE.

Bytyqi followed that up by starring for his nation's under-19 selection in the Euro u19 Championships in Hungary, scoring twice in Austria's run to the semi-finals where they were undone by eventual winners, Germany.

His 2014/15 season got off to a good start back at City. He added to his growing portfolio of free-kicks against Norwich on 12 September 2014 - one of two goals he scored in a 4-1 win.

Sinan was rewarded for his fine start to the 2014/15 season when he was named on the bench for the first time for the Capital One Cup third round tie against Sheffield Wednesday.

In January 2015, he signed a new two and a half year contract with the club and joined SC Cambuur on loan until 30 June. 

Sadly, Sinan's time in the Eredivisie was cut short by an injury sustained in a game against Heracles Almelo in the spring.

What's in a Name: Sinan Bytyqi
