Isaksson seals City switch
15 Aug 2006 - 13:36:27
Sweden goalkeeper Andreas Isaksson has completed his £2million move from Rennes to Manchester City.
The 24-year-old has joined City as a replacement for David James, who signed for Portsmouth at the weekend, and is likely to get a baptism of fire when Stuart Pearce's men travel to Chelsea on Sunday.
Isaksson told City's official website: "It's a great club to come to, and to come to England and play for a club like Manchester City is an honour for me.
"It's a big club, there are a lot of good players in the squad and I am really looking forward to playing here.
"I feel good, I have been in training for three or four weeks and it should not take too much time to adjust to playing here, but I think it's more physical for keepers over here and tougher than in France. I am looking forward to that, I think it will suit me."
Isaksson has won 42 international caps and was Sweden's first choice goalkeeper at the World Cup finals.
