Manchester City are finally set to make their first signing since the end of last season after agreeing to a deal for Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell.

London – Manchester City are finally set to make their first signing since the end of last season after the Premier League champions agreed a deal for Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell on Sunday.

City boss Roberto Mancini had been frustrated with the club's failure to strengthen his squad, but the Italian should be appeased by the imminent capture of highly-rated England international Rodwell.

“Everton have agreed an undisclosed fee with Manchester City for the transfer of Jack Rodwell,” a statement on Everton's website read.

“The midfielder is set to undergo a medical with the Premier League champions on Sunday.”

Rodwell, 21, is regarded as one of the best young midfielders in the Premier League and has already won two caps for England after making his debut against Spain last year. – Sapa-AFP
