City Sign Kompany From Hamburg

Although Hamburg's official website does not carry details of the deal, it is understood that the two clubs have agreed a fee for the 22-year-old.

Kompany has been at Hamburg for the past two seasons, but has failed to make the expected impression since landing from Anderlecht.

Kompany was rated as one of Europe's brightest prospects when he moved from his homeland to the Bundesliga, however, he has not set the German top divison alight.

His club were far from impressed earlier this summer when Kompany reneged on an agreement to return from his country's Olympic bid.

Hamburg had permitted the centre-back to feature in Belgium's first two outings, however, he contrived to have himself sent off in the first against Brazil, thereby ruling him out of the second against hosts China.

The Belgian FA were not in accordance with Kompany's decision to remain in China with the under-23 panel past the accepted deadline, and he was forced to return to his club.

He played last week in the 2-2 Bundesliga opening-day draw with Bayern Munich, however, he now seems to have played his last game for the club.

Manchester City have now reportedly lodged a bid on his services, and a deal may be pushed through before the weekend.

Hamburg's director of football Dietmar Beiersdorfer said: ."We wish Vincent all the best for his future."
