Manchester City have confirmed the signing of midfielder Kevin de Bruyne for a club-record fee reported to be 58 million pounds.

The 24-year-old Belgian has agreed a six-year deal at the Etihad Stadium.

He won last season's German Cup with Wolfsburg, having joined them from Chelsea in January 2014.

De Bruyne becomes City's fourth high-profile summer signing after Raheem Sterling, Fabian Delph and Nicolas Otamendi.


Lancashire triumph in T20 final

Lancashire are the T20 Blast champions after a 13-run win over Northants in the final at Edgbaston.

The Lightning triumphed in their third final appearance to win their first limited overs trophy since 1999.

They set the Steelbacks a target of 167, the highest on a low-scoring Finals Day. Alex Davis top-scored with 47 off 26 balls to be named man of the match.

Lancashire had reached the final with a 6-wicket win over Hampshire.

James Faulkner, who starred with bat and ball in the semi-final, dislocated his finger in the final. The Australian all-rounder described it as "a day I'll never forget."

Watford boss aims to stop in-form Man City

Watford boss Quique Flores has said "everything is possible" ahead of his side's trip to in-form Manchester City on Saturday.

The Premier League newcomers will be looking to cause an upset at the Etihad, but City currently have a 100 per cent record and have thus far looked unstoppable.

"They have a lot of tools, and a lot of players with different characteristics - the power of (Sergio) Aguero, the intelligence of (David) Silva, the football of Yaya (Toure). We will try to solve this," Flores told Hornets PlayerHD.

"For us it is very important to prepare a good plan and a good strategy, with the idea to be competitive. In football everything is possible.

"We are happy with our results in the league and we are in a good position in the table. Of course we have a very tough opponent, but my approach does not change."
