Iraq midfielder Nashat Akram claims he has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with Manchester City.

The 23-year-old midfielder, who has been training with City this week, said he will join Sven-Goran Eriksson´s side after finalising terms with previous club Al Ain in Abu Dhabi and when a work permit is issued.

"I´ve signed a contract with Manchester City for two years and a half after finishing the medical tests," Akram told Middle Eastern television channel MBC.
