Spanish World Cup winner David Silva arrived for his medical this morning ahead of completing his £24million switch to Manchester City.
The midfielder has agreed a £160,000-a-week deal at Eastlands and will officially be unveiled once he has the green light from City’s medical team.

Silva will sign a four-year deal to join fellow new boys Yaya Toure and Jerome Boateng – brought in from Barcelona and Hamburg respectively – at City.

On agreeing the move last month, he said: ‘I have enjoyed six years at Valencia, they discovered me as a footballer and they will always be a special club for me.

‘The time is right for me to seek a new challenge, and I am thrilled about playing in England with Manchester City.

‘I believe the Premier League is one of the best competitions in the world and I want to bring success to City and win trophies for them.

‘I want to say that I always hoped to come to Manchester City and I am excited about my future there.

‘They are a club with a great future with fantastic players. I want to be an important player in Manchester City’s history.

‘There has been a lot of speculation about me in the British and Spanish media, and I need to fully concentrate on playing for Spain in the World Cup.

‘That is why my advisers have been dealing with City for me so that I can have my attentions only on South Africa and playing well for my national team.’
