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.
