Comings and goings.

Two players from the list of potential summer free agents are set to commit their future to the club. It is reported this morning that Lee Croft has signed a two year extension to his contract whilst Nicky Weaver has been offered a new deal on the back of his return to fitness and performances in the reserves and out on loan at Sheffield Wednesday.

Another one of the summer out of contract players may now definitely be playing for City future is Mikkel Bischoff as he has followed the path of Weaver and moved to Sheffield Wednesday on loan for a month.

Sylvain Distin's future has again been speculated upon over the past day or so. Stuart Pearce has put the ball back in his court by stating a new deal is on the table, yet this morning Marseille are the latest French side to be linked with a move for him with a report quoting him as telling the French media;

"Coming back to France is a possibility, even though I am
happy at Manchester City. I have had contacts with a club in the south, but I
can't tell you any more about it."

It is believed that rather than financial terms being the stumbling block on Distin signing a deal, he is keen for City to be in Europe before committing himself any further. One other potential worry in re-signing him is his mysterious absence from any of the French squads over the last year or so. Perhaps his thinking is that to rectify this he needs to be playing at a high profile French club.
