Busy City sign Savic

City today confirmed the signing of 20-year old defender Stefan Savic from Partizan Belgrade, their second signing in as many days. He moves to Eastlands on an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £6 million with a 4-year contract. The Montenegro international had impressed very well for Partizan this past season, and was getting attention from many of Europe's top clubs. He had a 10 day trial with Arsenal last season, and with increased interest from the Gunners in the last few weeks, it appears City have taken one of their top targets (2 great transfers in a row over the North Londoners).

Along with Gael Clichy's arrival, it fortifies the back line and adds even more depth to an already spectacular defense. With the defense essentially all set, it would seem Mancini's next transfer would have to be in attack; either a striker to replace want-a-way Carlos Tevez, or a creative midfielder to add flair and playmaking in the final third of the field. But with every incoming transfer, one can't help but think of when the exodus of City's fringe players will begin.
