Manchester City chairman Thaksin Shinawatra has discussed their plans for the summer market.

He told MCFCTV: "We need to look at where the weak points are and where we should have new players next season. So far I am very happy with the foundations we have laid down, but we still have to improve a lot more.

"We probably need one each of a striker, midfielder and defender because in the Premier League injuries are unavoidable. If we have too small a squad then we will have the problem at the end of the season, so we have to have enough good players for Sven to play the system that he wants.

"We'll look across the globe and start to look for good players, we have already started to discuss our targets."
