Manchester City completed the signing of Bosnia and Herzegovina striker Edin Dzeko last night.

The 24-year-old has signed a four-and-a-half year contract and reportedly cost £27m.

Although the former Wolfsburg star completed his move too late to be considered for tomorrow's FA Cup tie at Leicester, he is likely to make his debut against Wolves at Eastlands next Saturday. "City are playing for first place in the Premier League and that is what I want. Everyone expects goals and I want to score them but most of all I want to contribute to a successful team," he said.

Dzeko becomes Roberto Mancini's ninth signing since replacing Mark Hughes and his arrival is likely to trigger the departures of Emmanuel Adebayor and Roque Santa Cruz.
