City sign midfielder

On the heels of the departures of Claudio Reyna and Ben Thatcher, it was announced today that French midfielder Djamel Abdoun has joined on loan for the remainder of the season - with a view to a permanent deal.

Abdoun, just twenty years old, arrives from Ligue 2 side Ajaccio (who were relegated last season). He arrives as a surprise as as far as I know there was no reports linking him with a move, although the nature of the deal doesn't surprise me and Pearce was probably waiting until Reyna and Thatcher headed for the exit door to free up the finance to bring him in.

I don't confess to know anything about Abdoun, but L'Equpie has this profile of him.
