Sommeil, 29, has been in talks with City for some time but Bordeaux have been awaiting financial guarantees from City before releasing their player.

He is expected to sign a three-year deal at Maine Road if he passes a medical.

A statement on Bordeaux's website said: "David Sommeil will travel to Manchester to satisfy a medical examination with a view to a final transfer."
