Germany midfielder excited to work with Pep Guardiola after signing on four-year deal at City

Ilkay Gundogan is relishing the prospect of winning honours in England and Europe with Manchester City and their new manager Pep Guardiola after signing on a four-year deal.

The Germany international joins from Borussia Dortmund as Man City's first summer addition.

"I'm thrilled to have signed for Manchester City. When I learned of City’s interest my heart was set on coming here and things have moved very quickly," the 25-year-old central midfielder told mancity.com.

"I have a new challenge and that is to achieve great things with City. The opportunity to work with a coach like Pep Guardiola is something I am really looking forward to and I am flattered to be the first signing the club has made this summer.

"I have my best years ahead of me and I think we can achieve great things together."

Gundogan has made 152 Bundesliga appearances and has scored four goals in 16 matches for Germany.

He started his professional career at VfL Bochum, making his senior debut in 2008/09, before joining Nurnberg in 2009 and signing for current Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp at Dortmund two years later.

Gundogan is recovering from a knee injury that has ruled him out of UEFA Euro 2016.

He is the eighth signing made by a Premier League club so far this summer, of which five have come from the Bundesliga.
