Manchester City have completed the signing of midfielder Kevin De Bruyne from Wolfsburg on a six-year deal.
The Belgium international has become the second most expensive player in British football history after sealing a move which will cost the Premier League club upwards of £55m
The Belgium international was voted Player of the Year for 2014-15 in Germany after a stellar season for the Bundesliga runners-up.
His performances were so impressive that City kept up their pursuit throughout the summer and have now broken their transfer record with a deal understands to be worth more than £55 million, including add-ons.
City had been in talks with their German counterparts for much of the transfer window and for weeks their efforts to bring the former Chelsea man back to England were resisted.
Wolfsburg CEO Klaus Allofs kept up a defiant public stance until this past week, when City’s resolve to do a deal shone through and they agreed to pay the second highest transfer fee in British football history.
