French move for Fernandes

Published Add your comment

Manchester City have confirmed Gelson Fernandes has joined St Etienne for an undisclosed fee.

The Swiss midfielder found himself on the fringes last season after manager Mark Hughes arrived from Blackburn.

Fernandes moved to City from FC Sion in July 2007 and made his debut in the Carling Cup win over Bristol City a month later.

He made 59 appearances, scoring four times, but he was increasingly used as a substitute.

The French side are coached by former Portsmouth manager Alain Perrin.
