    Manchester City have signed Ilkay Gundogan from Borussia Dortmund on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

    The Germany international has made 157 appearances over the last five seasons for the Bundesliga outfit, helping them to league title and a DFB-Pokal.

    “I’m thrilled to have signed for Manchester City,” the 25-year-old told Man City’s official website. “When I learned of City’s interest my heart was set on coming here and things have moved very quickly.

    “Now I have a new challenge and that is to achieve great things with City. The opportunity to work with a coach like Pep Guardiola is something I am really looking forward to and I am flattered to be the first signing the club has made this summer.”

    The midfielder has won 16 caps for the national team, though a dislocated knee injury has ruled him out of the coming Euro 2016 championship.

    Gundogan becomes the first signing for incoming City manager Pep Guardiola.
