Aymeric Laporte will likely be 'excellent' for Guardiola — Neville

Aymeric Laporte will likely be 'excellent' for Guardiola — Neville

He has even mooted the possibility of representing Spain but will now be hoping a high-profile move to the Premier League leaders will catch Deschamps's attention.

Arsenal must remain patient in their pursuit of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the transfer hinges on Borussia Dortmund landing a replacement before allowing the striker to leave. "We are so happy for him". "He's fit, he's been playing the last period". But City are unlikely to get an easy ride against Alan Pardew's West Brom, who have amassed the second-highest number of yellow cards this season in the Premier League (47).

"He will stay at Monaco until the end of the season 100 per cent", Vasilyev told French radio station RMC. "This is not relevant".

Athletic Bilbao have announced that the buy-out clause in Aymeric Laporte's contract has been paid, with the defender now seemingly on the verge of joining Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola's side - five-time winners - play at the League One club's DW Stadium in a 19:55 GMT kick-off.

City are on course for a historic quadruple and will be greatly boosted by the addition of Laporte, who has long been admired by Guardiola. "So far, we haven't had to do that".

Full story as we #welcomeaymeric to #mancity !

The Agen native, who can also be deployed as a left-back, was named in La Liga's 2013/14 team of the year and was also part of the Bilbao team who claimed the club's first silverware in 31 years, by beating Barcelona 5-1 on aggregate to win the Supercopa de Espana Cup. "He played in the EFL Cup, Leicester away, and controlling the strikers he was really good but he hasn't the minutes he needs. We accept criticism, but more important is that they play well". He is an amazing guy and we are pleased but we are looking for the best solution. Add to this his aerial prowess and he should have few problems adjusting to the Premier League. I have no doubts.

Perhaps predictably, some have claimed that Athletic Club have actually done better from the deal - suggesting they have invested their money wisely and on a better player than the one they have replaced.
