Laporte set to switch to Spain in time for European Championship after being ignored by France

The Man City defender played for Les Bleus at youth level but has not won a single senior cap after being snubbed by Didier Deschamps

Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte it set to play for Spain at the European Championship, sources have confirmed to Goal.

The Spanish Football Federation has lodged paperwork with FIFA and is awaiting the final approval from the world governing body, and he could play at this summer’s tournament alongside team-mate Eric Garcia.

Laporte, 26, was born in the south-western French town of Agen but, despite playing for France at youth levels, has never appeared for the national team.
