Manchester City Football Club are set to land Sebastian Larsson in a shock deadline day move.

The Sweden international is currently plying his trade with Birmingham City, but his contract is due to expire at the end of the season.

However, Dan Roan from the BBC claims City are set to land Larsson on loan for the rest of the season, after they agreed an undisclosed fee with the St Andrews club for the deal.

Of course everyone associates Manchester City with big money swoops so this intelligent St Andrews’ raid will not have been seen on the horizon but does show that Roberto Mancini is able to spot a bargain in amongst his pursuits of mega money signings.

Swedish international Larsson was strongly linked with a move to Newcastle United and Aston Villa but appears to have opted for a long deal at Eastlands that he will hope can lead to a permanent deal in the summer.

The move for the 25 year old former Arsenal man was probably spurred on by the injury suffered by England international Adam Johnson.
