The Manchester City fans were delighted in the Transfer Tavern yesterday after their club confirmed the signing of Aymeric Laporte from Athletic Bilbao, but they are hoping to see their club complete further deals on deadline day.

Following weeks of speculation concerning a whole host of central defenders from across Europe’s top-divisions, Man City finally brought Laporte to the club in a club-record deal worth £57 million yesterday.

According to Sky Sports, Everton are interested in bringing Eliaquim Mangala to Goodison Park in a 6-month loan deal, and the news has been met with absolute delight by The Citizens faithful on Twitter.
