Bojinov: Petrov convinced me about Man City

Fiorentina striker Valeri Bojinov has revealed Martin Petrov's influence in him agreeing to join Manchester City.

The Bulgaria international is set to undergo a medical in Manchester today and his signing could be wrapped up by tomorrow morning.

Bojinov said: "I have already spoken with Martin Petrov and I'm very happy to be able to play with him. I must thank Sven Goran Eriksson, who has explained all his ambitions to me: I know this is a great opportunity for me.

"Thanks also to the fans and the leaderships of Lecce, Fiorentina and Juventus; after all this time passed in Italy, I felt the need to go abroad."
