Defender Kompany signs 4-year deal with Man City

Belgium defender Vincent Kompany joined Manchester City on Friday in a four-year deal from Bundesliga club Hamburger SV.
City said the 22-year-old Kompany could be available for Sunday's match against West Ham.
"I've been told that I'm going as a defensive midfielder," Kompany said. "I like this position a lot so I'm happy with that.
"I can play as a central defender as well and if the job needs to be done there then I can do that as well as anyone else and still bring something to the team."
Kompany arrives at the Premier League club, which did not disclose the fee, with experience of playing in the Champions League and Olympics.
"I do have a lot of experience and if it can help, then of course, but at first it helps myself because I have no impression here in the Premier League," he said.
Hamburg is glad to have offloaded Kompany, who played just 29 times after joining the German club in 2006.
"During his time in Hamburg, Vince was unable to fulfill his or our expectations," manager Bernd Hoffmann said Friday.
