Manchester City have completed the signing of Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fernandinho for a fee of about £30 million.

The 28-year-old, capped five times by Brazil, has signed a four-year deal, ending an eight-year stay in Ukraine.

Fernandinho is City's first summer signing while the club have also struck a deal for Sevilla winger Jesus Navas.

It is understood that Fernandinho waived about £4 million owed to him by Shakhtar under the terms of his contract in order to complete the deal.

The Blues, who are still without a manager after Roberto Mancini left the club, are expected to appoint Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini next week.
