City enjoy some Kompany

Manchester City have agreed a fee to sign Belgium
international defender Vincent Kompany from Hamburg, according to the German
club.
The 22-year-old defender, who has played 23 times for his country
began his career at Belgian club Anderlecht.

Despite my reticence about bringing in defensive reinforcements when the Silvestre story emerged, if we do land Kompany, I would be far happier.

No official word yet from ourselves, but I'll update later as and when an announcement is made.

UPDATE:

The story is beginning to be reported quite widely now, with the MEN suggesting Mark Hughes has him lined up for a role as the 'holding midfielder', whilst this Tottenham site is hopeful that it will mean the Corluka deal is to be resurrected.

UPDATE:

Official confirmation from the club has arrived this morning, and they are hopeful to get clearance for him in time to make his debut at home to West Ham this Sunday.
