Manchester City morning news: Kompany injury boost, Sagna explains City move

A round up of news stories this morning about Manchester City.

Vincent Kompany will be available for City’s tough fixture schedule following the international break.

The Belgian has been given the all-clear, according to the Daily Star, after being sent for a scan on a calf problem while on international duty.

City face games against Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Chelsea back-to-back after the international fixtures.

Bacary Sagna has branded Arsenal a ‘family club’ explaining the reasons behind his move to the Etihad.

Sagna turned down repeated new contract offers at the Gunners to link up with City.

“I am 31 and this was the right time for me to leave Arsenal. I wanted to see somewhere new, and to boost my career. I have left a family club, which I joined when I was very young,” said Sagna.

Manchester City will send Kelechi Iheanacho out on loan this January.

A Manchester City official reportedly confirmed the news but didn’t give an indication of where the Nigerian youth international would be going.

One rumour is that he could link up with City’s sister club, New York City FC, in the United States.
