Abdi Ibrahim excited by prospect of playing with Man City signing Vieira

Abdi Ibrahim says it will be a dream come true to play alongside senior Manchester City teammate Patrick Vieira.

The Norwegian midfielder is tipped for big things at City.

And he told the club's website: "Patrick Vieira is a fantastic player - he is still a fantastic player. He's won so many trophies and honours throughout his career, and he's a legend at Arsenal.

"I can learn so much from him. I really want to train regularly with him - and it would be a dream come true for me to play alongside him in midfield for City one day. Yes, I would be walking on air that day!

"Patrick spoke to me after my debut in the Scunthorpe game and he told me I had played really well. I was really, really over the moon to hear Patrick Vieira saying that to me."
