Liberian whiz Alex Nimley is set to join Manchester City.

The Sunday Mirror says City have sealed a deal to sign Nimley - after the teenager scored a sensational goal in training with Sven-Goran Eriksson's first team squad.

Nimley, 16, came to England last month from Cameroon outfit Cotonsport to pursue his Premier League dream. But after Portsmouth refused to meet his wage demands and Blackburn failed to make an offer, City stepped in with a three-and-a-half-year contract that he will sign in the next week.
