The 31 year old right back will be reunited with Roberto Mancini on a transfer move valued at £3m. City have already signed striker Scott Sinclair for about £8m, Richard Wright joins on a year long move from Preston as back up goalie to Joe Hart and Costel Pantimilion.
The Blues are expected to prise out holding midfielder Javi Garcia from Benfica for approximately £20m. A fee has been agreed upon with the requisite paperwork to follow. Matija Nastasic, the Serbian half back from Fiorentina will join shortly as underachieving Stefan Savic heads in the opposite direction.
Finally, City makes some moves. It’s been a quieter transfer season and they went to the transfer deadline to do it. No eye popping figures except for Garcia’s fee but Portugese and Spanish clubs typically lock in their players with ludicrous buy out clauses.
