Sven Goran Eriksson landed the big name he had promised for City yesterday, signing Everton striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni on loan for the rest of the season.
The 28 year old Nigerian international has maintained a good goalscoring record during his career in England which has seen spells with Portsmouth, Middlesbrough and Everton and he has notched over 100 Premier League goals. He scored for Nigeria against South Korea in the 2010 World Cup, one of 21 goals for his country .
Eriksson has hinted that he will be involved in the game at Preston on Saturday.
There has been strong speculation linking Richie Wellens with a move to Premier League Birmingham, though it is thought that the City midfielder will opt to stay at the Walkersd Stadium.
