City have bolstered their strike-force by completing the signing of Emmanuel Adebayor from Arsenal.

Adebayor, 25, passed a medical yesterday and signed on a five-year deal for an undisclosed fee rumoured to be around £25 million.

The Togo striker joins summer signings Carlos Tevez and Roque Santa Cruz upfront and is expected to meet up with the City squad for their pre-season tour in South Africa.

Speaking about the welcome he received at the City of Manchester Stadium, Adebayor earlier told the club's official website: "It made me feel really welcome and special and I can't wait to play for City's fans and show them what I can do.
"I was born to play football and that is what I want to do. I have come here to make history for this club and those supporters.”
