City Defence Strengthened

City Defence Strengthened

MCFC have just confirmed the signing of Tal Ben Haim from Chelsea for an undisclosed fee and subject to a work permit...

This is certainly a step in the right direction for Mark 'Bluesy' Hughes as he begins to bolster his squad in preparation of what could be a long season including our longed for European mission.

The official site confirmed:

'The 26-year-old former Bolton man has penned a four-year contract and becomes Mark Hughes second signing as City Manager.'

Welcome to City, Tal!


What are your thoughts on this signing? Should City now move for a midfield general and another striker? Check out the Vital MCFC Forums and give us your views...

Well, let's be honest, K. He was hardly ever going to play regularly at Chelsea. I just hope his morale and performance hasn't been ruined SWP style.

Nice one city 81! Right now, I'm still worried over squad numbers. We're still thin on the ground and for me, too lightweight in midfield.
