Gareth Barry has become City's first signing of the summer transfer window.

The 28 year old talented England midfielder has signed a five-year contract at Eastlands for a reported £12 million fee. Barry, who turned down the advances of Liverpool last summer to stay at Aston Villa, will be linking up with City's Player of the Year Stephen Ireland, who has also just signed a new five-year deal.

The player is set to be unveiled in City's colours later this week and will feature in England's World Cup qualifier against Kazakhstan on Saturday.
