Manchester City have completed their fourth signing of the summer with the capture of 6ft 8in goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon from FC Timisoara

The 24 year old will be a direct replacement for Shay Given, who left for Aston Villa, and will provide back-up to England No 1 Joe Hart.

The 13 times capped Romanian international first caught the eye when he featured for FC Timisoara in last season’s Europa League play-off against City.

The highly-rated keeper has also been linked with Inter Milan and West Brom this summer.
