Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson believes he has the ability to play in midfield in the Premier League if required.

The Brazil international, 24, has been hailed for his passing ability, which has helped Premier League leaders Man City.

“When I played in the Benfica youth teams, they would always call me to play in midfield if someone was missing and I didn’t ever embarrass myself,” he told FourFourTwo.

“So, if necessary I’m definitely up to the task. It wouldn’t be easy, especially in the Premier League, but I think I could manage the challenge.”

Ederson has made 25 Premier League appearances for City this season after joining from Benfica for a reported £35million.
