Vieira deal 'by Friday'

It is now widely reported that Patrick Vieira is shortly to undergo a medical at the club (possibly this afternoon) with a deal to be completed by Friday to enable him to make his debut against Blackburn on Monday.

The BBC have reported Vieira as saying:

"I have objectives and I can't achieve them by staying at Inter where I am not part of the coach's choice.

"What's important for me is to go to Manchester City, to show the coach that I am the same as I was during the period when he was at Inter.

"All this will help me get into the France team."

Although initial reports suggested a six month loan, it has been suggested that the deal may be as long as 18 months - presumably with the possibility for a twelve month extension being agreed in summer 2010.

More to come later on this no doubt.
