Manchester City misfit Geovanni is poised to seal a move to Deportivo La Coruna, his agent Roberto Assuncao has claimed.

The La Liga outfit have lined up a move for the Brazilian forward and have offered him a one-and-a-half-year contract.

However, the deal is dependent on City agreeing to release the player on a free transfer - despite the fact he is contracted to the summer.

"There is already an agreement for a year-and-a-half," Assuncao - Geovanni's step-father and representative - told AS.

"The player is very happy with the interest of Deportivo and hopes everything can move forward.

"Now everything depends on the release of Geovanni, over the past few days we have advanced a little and we hope for another meeting on Monday in the hope that we can get his direct release as a Manchester City player."
