Manchester City sign Spain international Nolito on four-year deal

Manchester City have confirmed the signing of Nolito from Celta Vigo.

The Spain forward, 29, has agreed a four-year contract to become the second arrival of Pep Guardiola's reign as manager.

His transfer represents the second time he will have worked for the Spaniard, having done so when he was at Barcelona before joining Benfica in 2011.

"Pep Guardiola is one of the best managers in the world," Nolito told City's official website.

"He knows a lot about the game and he's going to help me progress as a player and I'm sure he'll get the best out of me.

"I'll try to bring as much as I possibly can. I'll do everything that the manager asks of me, try my absolute best and do everything I can to try to repeat the form I've shown throughout my career at various clubs.

"It's just about trying to play my normal game and let's hope that I can help Manchester City to win games."
