Manchester City owner Thaksin Shinawatra will make over £30 million available to manager Sven Goran Eriksson for the winter market.

The Sun says Shinawatra has been delighted with Eriksson's performance so far and will hand him a further £30m to spend in the January transfer window.

Sven claims he is committed to the 'project' at Eastlands and the City fans have taken to him.

It is not just down to where they are in the table, either, but how they have got there with some exciting football.
