thumbnail Hello,

The Romanian played against his new team last year in the Europa League and will provide cover for first choice Joe Hart after the departure of Shay Given to Aston Villa

Manchester City have signed goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon from FC Timisoara for an undisclosed fee.

The Romanian will be understudy to No.1 Joe Hart after the departure of Shay Given to Aston Villa, but the club have confirmed on their official website that the Romanian is still awaiting a work permit.

The 24-year-old has represented his country 13 times since making his debut in 2008 and played twice against City in last season’s Europa League, where the Citizens emerged triumphant.

Pantilimon becomes the club's fourth signing of the summer after following the footsteps of Gael Clichy, Stefan Savic and Sergio Aguero.
