Tributes have poured in for former Manchester City player Jeremy Wisten, who has died at the age of 17.

Malawi-born Wisten, who was a defender, joined City’s elite youth squads in 2016. The club confirmed his death in a statement posted on Twitter on Sunday.

Tributes to the teenager have been paid by City’s first-team players, with Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero paying their respects on social media.

The cause of Wisten’s death is unknown at this stage.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to support his family. Over $10,000 has already been raised.

The page description in part reads: “The most beautiful soul who was loved by many. Everyone who knew Jez would know that he had a smile that would light up the room.”

Rest in peace, Jeremy
