Injury prone defender who has played for Real Madrid, Tottenham, Leeds, Middlesbrough and Newcastle before joining City on a free transfer.
Has been a massive fans favourite everywhere he has been and is regarded as, technically, one of the best defenders of his generation yet injuries have ruined what promised to be a fine career.
Signed on a pay-as-you-play deal for 12 months, with the option of a second year should he prove his fitness.
Undoubted quality he has signed fit, lets just hope he can stay that way.
