Manchester City have signed Spain midfielder David Silva from Valencia for a fee in the region of £26 million.

Silva, who had been linked with a move away from Valencia for some time as the financially-troubled Spanish club look to raise funds, has finalised the details over a four-year contract.

He will complete his medical and officially become a City player once his involvement in the World Cup is over.

"Firstly I would like to thank Valencia as a club and all of their loyal fans, and my team mates there and staff," the 24-year-old told City's official website.

"I have enjoyed six years at Valencia, they discovered me as a footballer and they will always be a special club for me.

"The time is right for me to seek a new challenge, and I am thrilled about playing in England with Manchester City.

"I believe the Premier League is one of the best competitions in the world and I want to bring success to City and win trophies for them."

City boss Roberto Mancini added: "I think that David Silva is one of the best midfielders in Europe, and I hope he will be a very important player for Manchester City.

"I am so pleased he is coming to us, I think he can make a big, big impact for Manchester City.

"I hope he does very well for Spain in the World Cup and then joins us for our pre-season, ready to compete in the Premier League.

"I am very excited about seeing him playing for Manchester City."
