Football: Man City Confirm Bridge Signing

Posted on: January 3, 2009

LONDON : Manchester City confirmed the signing of England left-back Wayne Bridge from Chelsea on Saturday.

Bridge completed his medical and agreed personal terms on a move which is believed to have cost City around 10 million pounds (10.4 million euros).

The 28-year-old signed a four-and-a-half-year contract and was introduced to City fans immediately before Saturday’s FA Cup third round tie with Nottingham Forest.

He is expected to make his debut against Portsmouth at Fratton Park next Saturday.

“I played alongside Wayne at Southampton and saw him come through the ranks,” City boss Mark Hughes told City’s website.

“He was an outstanding young player and he’s progressed year on year in his career.

“He is a successful player. He is an England international and has just played for one of the top four sides in the country.

“He is of the right quality and is the type of player we need to attract.

“We need good players that understand this league and we will look to carry on in that way and add more if we can.”

Bridge is likely to be the first of several big money arrivals at Eastlands during the January transfer window, with Hughes linked with bids for Blackburn striker Roque Santa Cruz, as well as West Ham duo Craig Bellamy and Scott Parker.
