I'm happy with this as he's highly spoken of by both Guardiola and Man City fans. He also seems to havre his head screwed on and wants to learn and improve. Let's hope he reacts well to having an extended period away from his home.

just had a quick look on his twitter account & although you cant take it as gospel (see S. Berahino) he comes across as a level headed young lad - glad to have him on board & hope he does well - refreshing in these days of overpaid superstars!

Bartley and Townsend look like long term planning, but that only works if they turn out to be good enough.

I don’t think you can plan too far ahead in our position as it's all about the short term (the coming season). If we get promotion then we can plan for the long term, however if we don't we need a short term strategy to see us bounce back to the Prem without financially crippling ourselves. That's why I am 100% behind bringing the likes of the Barnes and Adarabioyo in.

Loan deals are like certain foods, they are good as part of a balanced diet (or transfer policy in this case).

If you look at the 2 promotions that i’d say jointly resulted in us having an extended stay in the top division, we signed the likes of Morrison, Brunt, Thomas, Mulumbu, Jara, Cox, Texeira and Miller.

All of those players contributed to making us one of the top 2 teams in the league in both seasons, and while some couldn’t quite make the step up to prem level, others formed the backbone of our premier league side that went on to have a long stay in the league.

Our signings this summer can’t quite be described that way so far, as Bartley has had 6 years in the top flight with Swansea without breaking in to the team, while Townsend is 25 (so not that young), and is being brought in as back up to Gibbs.

The loan moves we have made so far are great, but we do need to balance that out by signing a couple of players now who we see as long term options (think a young Brunt and Morrison).

My mate made the comparison earlier that he's City's answer to Axel Tuanzebe. Could be great to have him here.

Just seen the official video of him on twitter during the very thorough looking medical and signing and in one shot big Dave is there with him and he, Tosin, is even taller than BIG DAVE!  :o

Correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t think Dave is partially tall 6ft or something, I’d be impressed if he was wider than Dave the blokes an absolute tank.

Still never heard of the kid but seems to be highly thought of by one of the best managers in the world so he must have something about him.

Not sure if anybody has been watching all or nothing about man city from last season.

Tosin is in quite a bit of the footage around the squad, also there is one scene where they list the first team centre halves, there are only four of them and tosin name is one of them.

I know when we signed him he had been playing for city in preseason but i thought that was because of world cup players being absent, etc but based on that he was always around the city first team less than six months ago at a very young age he must be something quite special!
