City complete Eastwood deal

Coventry City have completed the signing of striker Freddy Eastwood from Wolves for a fee believed to be in the region of £1.1million.
The 24-year-old was made available for transfer at Molineux earlier in the summer after a disappointing first season with Mick McCarthy's side.
Eastwood failed to recapture the form he showed during three seasons with Southend United where he netted 63 goals.
The Wales international has put pen to paper on a four-year contract at the Ricoh Arena and is aiming to kick-start his career with the Sky Blues.
He told the club's official website: "The move has been talked about for quite a while so I am just delighted it's finally going through.
"My aim is to end the season as the club's top goalscorer. I've scored goals elsewhere and that is exactly what I want to do here at Coventry.
"The Ricoh Arena is a great place to play your football - it is one of the best in the Championship so I am looking forward to getting out there."
