Manchester City have announced the signing of Brazilian midfielder Elano, their third signing in a matter of hours.
The 26-year-old has penned a four-year deal at Eastlands after City agreed terms with his previous club Shakhtar Donetsk.
"This morning has proved to be an immensely productive one, the outcome of which is the acquisition of three top quality players for Manchester City Football Club," said City chief executive, Alistair Mackintosh.
"This has been achieved as a result of some tremendous team work and I would like to praise everyone involved for their efforts.
"I would particularly like to thank Dr Thaksin [Shinawatra, City owner] without whom today's signings would not have been possible."
