Manchester City midfielder agrees Anzhi deal

Published Add your comment

Manchester City midfielder Abdul Razak has joined Anzhi Makhachkala.

City's official website confirmed the permanent deal for the Ivorian earlier today.

The midfielder had initially made the switch on loan and due to the terms of the player's move, his transfer became permanent after the former Crystal Palace youth product made his first appearance against CSKA Moscow.

Razak joined the Citizens from Palace in 2010 and was thought highly of by former manager Roberto Mancini.

The Italian gave the youngster his debut in February 2011 - coming on as a substitute for David Silva as City beat West Brom 3-0.

20-year-old Razak donned the sky blue shirt for the last time for the Manchester City Elite Development Squad against rivals Manchester United, losing 2-1.

Anzhi recently abandoned their big-spending ways.

An exodus of senior players on big wages departed the club, including striking legend Samuel Eto'o.

Another City youngster has left the squad, with young left-winger Alex Henshall joining Bristol Rovers on a month-long emergency loan.

City face West Ham at Upton Park this weekend, and Sam Allardyce's men will be looking to build on their 3-0 victory over Tottenham last time out, while Manuel Pellegrini's men ended Everton's unbeaten start in their last fixture.
