Valeri Bojinov has expressed his gratitude to Sven Goran Eriksson for taking him to Manchester City.
The Bulgarian is poised to complete £7.5million switch from Fiorentina to the City of Manchester Stadium.
City completed deals for Javi Garrido, Vedran Corluka and Elano on Thursday, and Bojinov is set to join the influx.
“I would like to thank Mr Eriksson for giving me the possibility of this transfer,” Bojinov told La Repubblica.
“I have spent eight years in Italy but now is the right time for me to change country.
“I hope I never have to come back to Fiorentina again.”
