De Jong nears Man City move

Manchester City are on the verge of landing Nigel De Jong from German side Hamburg, according to reports. It is understood that the Citizens are close to sealing a 15 million GBP deal for the Dutchman.

De Jong has been a revelation at Hamburg since joining from Ajax, but as expected, a high profile club made a move for the Dutchman this transfer window.

Man City are set to offer the player a lucrative contract to move to the City of Manchester.

Hamburg confirmed a deal was almost completed: "The clubs have agreed a fee. Nigel de Jong now has to reach agreement with Manchester City."
