City complete Dzeko signing

Published Add your comment

Manchester City have completed the signing of Bosnia and Herzegovina striker Edin Dzeko.

The 24-year-old has signed a four-and-a-half year contract and has been handed the vacant number 10 shirt.

Although the former Wolfsburg star completed his move too late to be considered for Sunday's FA Cup tie at Leicester, he is likely to make his debut against Wolves at Eastlands next Saturday.

"I was always attracted most to joining City. I have been linked with the club for a long time, going back to last summer, but Wolfsburg did not want to sell me until Friday," he told

"There was too much speculation in the papers but my head is always clear.

"It is important that is the case because if you think too much about what might be it is a distraction and it can affect your game."

Dzeko becomes Roberto Mancini's ninth signing since replacing Mark Hughes just over a year ago and his arrival is likely to trigger the departures of Emmanuel Adebayor and Roque Santa Cruz at some point during this month's transfer window.
