Manchester City have completed the signing of Nigel de Jong on a four-and-a-half year contract.

The Dutch international had been in talks with City recently after they agreed a fee with Hamburg on Monday for his services.

De Jong becomes City's third signing of the winter transfer window following the arrivals of Wayne Bridge and Craig Bellamy.

The fee for the 24-year-old former Ajax midfielder, who has won 29 caps for his county, remains undisclosed.
