Manchester City have confirmed the signing of Spain striker Alvaro Negredo from La Liga outfit Sevilla for a fee reported to be £20million.

The Spain international, who scored 25 goals in La Liga last season, is City's third summer signing, and their second from Sevilla, following the arrival of Jesus Navas and Fernandinho from Shakhtar Donetsk.

The 27-year-old forward will link up with the rest of the City squad for their ongoing pre-season tour of South Africa.

He should be joined by another new attacking signing, Stevan Jovetic, who is expected to complete his move from Fiorentina soon.

A former Real Madrid player, Negredo rose to prominence at Almeria, where he scored 32 goals in his first two seasons at the club.
