Manchester City have completed the signing of Manuel Akanji from Borussia Dortmund.
Akanji, whose Dortmund deal was due to expire in 2023, has penned a five-year contract with City.
"I love the way Manchester City play," Akanji commented after signing his contract.
"I watch a lot of Premier League and obviously a lot of Manchester City games, because they have been champions many times in recent years.
"I really like the football style the team plays, and I think I can fit perfectly in that style," said the centre-back.
Akanji spent four and a half years at Dortmund, making 158 appearances with four goals and two assists to his name.
