Manchester City have completed the signing of Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho from Shakhtar Donetsk for a fee of £34million.

Fernandinho (pictured), a deep-lying playmaker, is thought to have been on City's radar for some time and their top target for the summer.

His signing comes soon after Sevilla confirmed a deal for winger Jesus Navas is in place and is another decisive early blow in the transfer market after the frustrations of last summer.
