Official: City Sign Kompany

Yes its official: City have Pipped Manutd to secure the services of Kompany.. lmao :D

Kompany, 22, emerged as a transfer target for the Citizens in the past week and the move has been completed this afternoon, the club have confirmed.

The Belgian international is part of the Olympics team that is currently contesting for the bronze medal against Brazil, two goals down with half an hour remaining.

The defender, who can also play in defensive midfield and has been mooted to play there for City, has signed a four-year contract at Eastlands, for a fee rumoured to be in the region of €10 million.

The signing will go some way towards appeasing City fans who have grown frustrated with rumours of internal unrest and financial woes surrounding owner Thaksin Shinawatra.

The club are hopeful that Kompany, who has been capped over 20 times for Belgium, can gain international clearance in time to debut this weekend against West Ham United.

"Manchester City can confirm the signing of Belgian international defender Vincent Kompany from Bundesliga side Hamburg SV on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee," read a statement on the club's official website.

"It is hoped Vincent will receive all the relevant clearance to be able to feature in Sunday's home clash with West Ham United."

I think this is a good buy for City... Might take some time to adjust though... Anyone think Hughes will make any more eye-catching signings?
