Canadian born and former Manchester United midfielder, Owen Hargreaves successfully passed a gruelling three hour Manchester City medical yesterday and now he and his agent are in the middle of negotiating personal terms.
The 30-year-old is expected to sign a one-year contract and then be named in Roberto Mancini's Premier League 25-man squad which is announced tomorrow.
Over the last couple of years Hargreaves has been plagued with various ailments, not least his knees, however, he's apparently overcome his career ending injuries and is eager and raring to rekindle his footballing future.
Joe Hart - 'I don't know what to make of that — that's been put on my toes. Great, great. It's a massive signing.'
'I've never been involved with him but I saw a lot of him before and know how highly he was regarded when he was at Bayern Munich and at Manchester United. He's a huge player and if he's fit and a part of Manchester City, he'll be another great signing.'
Joleon Lescott - 'I'm not surprised that we're signing Owen because he's a great player. We've got such a lot of talent in the squad and to add to it is healthy.'
'He can definitely come back for England. I don't think anyone is ruling him out of any competition. If we can get him fit I'm sure it won't be long before he is back to his best.'
'The manager has seen something. We all know he's got the quality to play Champions League football. That can only bode well for the club.'
Wayne Rooney - 'He's been out for a couple of years now and, to be fair to him, he's worked really hard.'
'He got back last season, played one game, and then did his hamstring. It will be difficult for him to get back to his best but I hope he can.'
Manchester City is expected to make an official statement later this afternoon.
