Star striker Dzeko signs for City & other transfer news

Edin Dzeko has joined City after completing his transfer from Wolfsburg.

He has signed a four and a half year deal and will wear the number 10 shirt.

The prolific 24-year-old striker can’t wait for the new marriage to start after a lengthy engagement.

He is likely to make his home debut against Wolves at CoMs on Saturday week (tickets still available).

“It has been a long time that I have been linked with the club going back to last summer but Wolfsburg did not want to sell me until today,” he smiled after completing a medical.

“There was too much speculation in the papers but my head is always clear. It is important that is the case because if you think too much about what might be it is a distraction and it can affect your game. I was always attracted most to joining City."

Toni is a Juventus player
Luca Toni has moved to Turin after Juventus reached an agreement with Genoa in light of Fabio Quagliarella's season-ending injury.

Toni will have a medical this afternoon before putting pen to paper on a contract until June 2012.

Blues eager to seal Keane deal

Birmingham are keen to know sooner or later whether they can sign Robbie Keane to give them time to pursue other targets if their bid to sign the Tottenham striker falls through.

Spurs edge closer to Becks deal

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp hopes to tie up a two-month loan for David Beckham by Sunday, following a week of talks with his club LA Galaxy.
