Manchester City have made their second signing of the summer after announcing that Spanish striker Nolito has joined the club from Celta Vigo.

The move was completed after City triggered the €18m release clause in the Spaniard's contract, according to the BBC. The striker has just returned from Euro 2016, where he scored one goal as Spain were knocked out in the last 16 by Italy.

Nolito is Guardiola's second purchase since joining the club - although the new manager has yet to be officially announced - with German midfielder Ilkay Gundogan also arriving in Manchester.

The 29-year old scored 12 goals in La Liga last year, notching 14 and 13 in the seasons before that.
