Haaland keeps No.9

Haaland wore the No.9 shirt for Dortmund last season and went on to score 29 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions for the German side.

City will be hoping he has similar luck with the number in his debut season in the Premier League after passing on the jersey to him.

Haaland inherits the number from Gabriel Jesus, who wore it last season before his summer switch to Arsenal.

The No.9 top at City had previously been worn by the likes of Francis Lee, Brian Kidd, Joe Royle, Trevor Francis, Paul Dickov, Niall Quinn and Paulo Wanchope.
