Serbian international defender Matija Nastasic has joined Manchester City for an undisclosed fee thought to be in the region of £10million.

The 19-year-old, labelled as the ‘new Nemanja Vidic’, has signed a long-term deal at the Etihad Stadium, with Stefan Savic moving in the opposite direction to Fiorentina.

Centre-back Nastasic emerged as one of the brightest prospects in Serie A last season and will now provide competition for Vincent Kompany, Kolo Toure and Joleon Lescott at the Premier League champions.

Savic, meanwhile, leaves City after just one season and made just 11 appearances for Roberto Mancini’s side.
