Manchester City have today completed the signing of Wayne Bridge from Chelsea for an undisclosed amount.
The 28-year-old England international left back has joined the Blues on a four and a half year deal and becomes the Club's first signing of the January transfer window.
Mark Hughes said of his latest signing: "Wayne’s a player I know I played alongside him at Southampton and I saw him come through the ranks. He was an outstanding young player and he’s progressed year on year in his career.
"He’s a successful player. He’s an England international and has just played for one of the top four sides in the country.
"He’s of the right quality and he’s the type of player we need to attract. We need good players that understand this league and we’ll look to carry on in that way and add more if we can."
Wayne will wear squad number 25 and mcfc.co.uk will bring you exclusive quotes from our new signing later today.
