Premier League champions Manchester City have completed the signing of defensive midfielder Fernando from Porto.

Porto issued a statement to the Portuguese Securities Market Commission (CMVM) late Wednesday, saying a deal worth £12million (15million euros) had been struck between the two clubs.

"I am so happy to finally be joining Manchester City," Fernando told City`s website.

"I know there was talk of me possibly signing last January so I am delighted that the deal has now been done and that I am a City player."
