FOOTBALL : Man City sign Jesus Navas from Sevilla for 4 years
Navas, 27, passed a medical in New York to complete a deal worth an initial £14.9m, potentially rising to £15.9m over the course of his contract.
Navas, aged 27, has earned 23 caps for Spain. He is a pacy right winger, and part of Spain's successful 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012 squads and is in the 23-man party picked for the eight-nation Confederations Cup, which starts on 15 June.
Navas spent his entire career to date at Sevilla, which is 20 miles north of his hometown of Los Palacios y Villafranca.
He was a key part of the Sevilla team that won the Uefa Cup in 2006 and 2007 but was held back earlier in his career by a fear of travelling away from his Andalusian home.
