Roque Santa Cruz is undergoing a medical at Manchester City ahead of his proposed move to Eastlands.

The long-term City target is finally set to complete his switch from Blackburn for a fee believed to be around £18million.


We may be some time.

I would be surprised if, having nailed his colours so clearly to the Santa Cruz mast, that Hughes would be keen to see the deal falling through at this stage due to an obvious (and public) injury, so would not be surprised if some prior due dilligence on his condition was conducted.
