Bojinov set for Parma move

Published Add your comment

Manchester City striker Valeri Bojinov is poised to seal a loan move to Parma.

City have confirmed the Bulgarian is currently in talks with the newly-promoted side.

Manager Mark Hughes has a surfeit of strikers and Ched Evans and Felipe Caicedo have both moved on in the past week.

Signed by Sven-Goran Eriksson from Fiorentina, Bojinov's career at City has been blighted by injury.

The 23-year-old made his debut on the opening day of the 2007-08 season as a substitute at West Ham and was named in the starting XI against Manchester United a week later.

Unfortunately he suffered a cruciate ligament injury after just six minutes. Ruled out for seven months, he was back in the reserves towards the end of the season.

He looked set for a second chance to shine at the start of last season but after being named in the team against Aston Villa for the first game he ruptured ligaments in the warm-up.

Bojinov returned to action by the end of March and scored his first Premier League goal against Spurs on May 16.
