City Complete Navas Signing

Manchester City have completed the signing of Spain winger Jesus Navas from Sevilla.

The Spanish side had revealed last week that they had agreed a fee with the English Premier League side, and the player had already revealed his delight in heading to the Etihad Stadium.

The formalities have now been completed though after he underwent a medical in New York and he will join up with his new club following the Confederations Cup.

A statement on the club's official site read, "Manchester City FC are delighted to announce the signing of Jesus Navas from Sevilla.

"The 27-year-old right winger has completed a medical in New York and will meet up with the Blues squad after the Confederations Cup and a short holiday.

"Navas has so far won 23 caps for Spain, helping his country to win the 2010 World Cup and the European Championships two years later.

"At club level he made 393 appearances for Sevilla scoring 34 goals over the past nine seasons and has won six major trophies.

"Jesus met with recently appointed New York City FC Director of Football Claudio Reyna in the Big Apple where Navas was presented with his new colours."

The player says that he looks forward to improving on his game in England and believes that the style of football will suit him.

"Manchester City is an exciting project and this is the right moment for me to take this step. I'm very happy with the opportunity and the decision," he added.

"The Premier League is a competition where the football is very fast and will suit the way I play. I'm really looking forward to it.

"I'm going to a great club in England and I want to continue developing my game there. The Club has put a lot of faith in me and I want to repay them out on the pitch."
