Manchester City have completed the signing of Tunisian World Cup defender Hatem Trabelsi from Ajax on a pay-as-you-play deal.The experienced full-back was forced to come through a series of stringent medical tests before agreeing what is believed to be a pay-as-you-play deal with the Blues.

Once courted by Manchester United and Arsenal, Trabelsi's ability is not in question but a series of knee injuries have placed a question mark over his durability.

Trabelsi still requires a work permit before officially being unveiled as a City player...
That seems like an awful lot of ifs... but if you're looking for an attacking full-back at transfer prices, you may have found your man.
