Man City signing Negredo says his game suits Premier League style

Manchester City signing Alvaro Negredo is confident his game suits the Premier League.

Negredo - who has won 14 caps for Spain and has signed a four-year deal - is nicknamed the 'Beast of the Vallecas' back home.

And he believes his style is a perfect fit for the English game, despite playing the whole of his career so far in the Spanish league.

He said: "I always thought this league could be good for my style.

"It's a very important moment in my career because I am signing for a great club like Manchester City. It's a dream to be here.

"I am a strong player. Good at headers. I have a powerful shot with my left foot. And I always try to be at the right place.

"I have chosen No 9, it is my favourite number since I was a kid. I have it tattooed. I love it.

"I don't like to set targets about the number of goals I want to score in a season. I just want to improve. It'll be great if I improve my numbers from previous seasons.

"I am here to work hard, help my team-mates so that we can become the best we can together. I want to try to lift some trophies here."
