City star close to La Liga move

Manchester City attacking midfielder, Geovanni, is close to agreeing a deal to sign for La Liga side Deportivo La Coruna.

The player has failed to nail down a first team place at City since joining Sven Goran Eriksson's side in the summer with the fantastic form of Elano.

His highlights as a City player include his memorable winner against loacl rivals Manchester United in the Derby back in August. He also scored during City's 1-1 draw away at Wigan back in November and in the first game of the season away at West Ham.

"There is already an agreement for a year-and-a-half," Roberto Assuncao - Geovanni's step-father and representative - told AS. "The player is very happy with the interest of Deportivo and hopes everything can move forward.

"Now everything depends on the release of Geovanni, over the past few days we have advanced a little and we hope for another meeting on Monday in the hope that we can get his direct release as a Manchester City player."

I personally feel Geovanni has been harshly treated as a City player. Geovanni played some lovely stuff in his brief appearances for the club but for whatever reason Eriksson hasn't given much of a chance. As a City fan I will be very sad to see him go.
