Manchester City have completed the signing of Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell.

Rodwell came through a medical as his new team-mates were defeating Chelsea in the Community Shield and has signed a five-year contract.

Although the fee was undisclosed, it is believed to be in the region of £12million.

There are a number of add-ons as part of the contract, which could eventually push that fee up towards £15m.

Rodwell will wear the number 17 shirt vacated by Jerome Boateng when he joined Bayern Munich last year.

"I relish the opportunity of playing with some of the best players in the world and continuing my development," Rodwell told mcfc.co.uk.
