Manchester City have completed the £27m signing of Bosnian international striker Edin Dzeko from Wolfsburg.
Dzeko, 24, has joined the Eastlands club on a four-and-a-half year deal.
However, he was not registered in time to feature in Sunday’s FA Cup third-round tie at Leicester. He could make his debut against Wolves next Saturday.
Dzeko has scored 66 goals in 111 games in Germany, helping Wolfsburg win the Bundesliga in 2009. He has 10 goals in 17 league games this season.
Dzeko becomes City boss Roberto Mancini’s ninth signing since replacing Mark Hughes just over a year ago.
His arrival is likely to trigger the departures of Emmanuel Adebayor and Roque Santa Cruz at some point during this month’s transfer window.
Dzeko said: “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 now.” (BBC Sport)
So the deal is done, Roberto Mancini has yet another striker, so does this mean the Man City side will now play with two up front from now on? Something Carlos Tevez has been desperately hoping they would start doing.
Edin Dzeko definitely has what it takes to make it in the Premier League and as if to prove the case we have included a video of his best bits from a hugely successful time at Wolfsburg.
