UEFA Champions League debutants Manchester City FC have made Romania goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon their fourth signing of the summer.

The 24-year-old joins from FC Timişoara for an undisclosed fee, subject to a successful work permit application. No further details of the transfer have been released for Pantilimon, who follows Stefan Savić, Sergio Agüero and Gaël Clichy to the City of Manchester Stadium in the off-season.
