City complete Witsel signing


Witsel seals City move

Axel Witsel has made the move to Manchester City from Coventry

Manchester City have again  been busy in the transfer market this time with the acquisition of Belgium International midfielder Axel Witsel. The 25 year old joins City from fellow division 3 side Coventry in a deal that See's Alvaro Dominguez and Saphir Taider make the move in the opposite direction to the Sixfields Stadium.

Witsel brings plenty of top flight experience with him to the Etihad having served 6 seasons at Everton and in all he has made 168 league appearances scoring 19 times in the process. 

After the deal had been announced City boss Steve Thompson had this to say on his latest recruit.

"I am delighted to welcome yet another world class player into our ranks, It's a deal i tried to do a week or two back and it didn't happen but Johan at Coventry has been top class and i am glad to get the deal done so quickly.

Axel is a player i have always admired he gives you plenty of versatility in the middle of the park as he can adapt his game to defend or attack. He adds some real competition to our midfield which is littered with world class individuals and Axel will have no problems slotting into the group.

He is fit and ready to go and will be in the squad for tomorrows away game at Chesterfield"
