The 27-year-old joined City for £27million in 2011, but he has always struggled to hold down a regular starting spot.

Of his 70 Premier League games for City, he has started just 36 of those - but still has managed 28 Premier League goals.

City boss Roberto Mancini is a fan of the Bosnian, but has conceded that because of his lack of starts he could very well be sold this summer and Dortmund are favourites for his signature as they are due to sell their leading marksman Robert Lewandowski.

General manager Michael Zorc has revealed that the club are interested, but denied a deal was already done - admitting there could be an issue with the 'economic aspect' of any deal.

"There should be little doubt about Edin Dzeko being a top-class striker," Zorc told Sport-Bild weekly.

"He is a great forward and a player one should be keen on. However there is also still somewhat of an economic aspect.

"It would be down to pure maths because Edin Dzeko is under contract at Manchester City beyond the end of the season."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
