Manchester City have announced the signing of goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon from Poli Timisoara.
Pantilimon, 24, made his debut for the Romanian national team in 2008 and played against City on two occasions in the Europa League last season. He arrives to provide cover for Joe Hart following the sale of Shay Given to Aston Villa.
Pantilimon is the club’s fourth signing of the summer after Gael Clichy, Stefan Savic and Sergio Aguero but, before the deal was announced on Friday, Mancini had indicated more arrivals are expected.
Mancini said: “We are missing other players, we don’t have enough players for all the season. This is a problem at the moment. I think we need another two or three players.”
