Manchester City have announced that they have completed the signing of Brazil midfielder Fernandinho from Shakhtar Donetsk for a fee believed to be around £34m.

City announced Fernandinho's signing on their official website, where the midfielder said of his move: "This is a change, a challenge and a chance that I have been waiting a long time for. Playing in the Premier League for City is like a dream.

"My ambition here is to win all the titles, the team here is strong, and so is the greatness of the club and the supporters. Professionally this is a spectacular thing. Playing for a huge club in a huge league makes me so happy. I hope I will be able to repay City for what they have done for me."

The player, who will likely feature in this summer's Confederations Cup for Brazil, joins on a four-year deal and is City's second signing of the summer after Sevilla winger Jesus Navas.
