Man City boss Hughes hopes to have Kompany available for Sunday

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes hopes to have Hamburg defender Vincent Kompany available for Sunday's match against West Ham.

The Independent says City are expected to today complete the £6m signing of the Belgium international.

The 22-year-old, who can play in either central defence or as a holding midfielder, flew into Manchester last night and will undergo a medical today before signing a four-year deal.

If terms can be agreed he will go straight into the squad for Sunday's Premier League meeting with West Ham United.
