Welcome to City Vincent - an excellent signing by City. Interested to see where Hughes plays him - Centre Half or in Midfield. I suspect the latter!

I am sure he has been brought in to beef up the midfield.

Should be interesting to see if he can handle the speed and everthing associated with the Premier League. Anyway, away with the doubts and on the last note - welcome to the mad house Mr Kompany.
