Austrian side FK Austria Wien have revealed that Nigerian international Olarenwaju Kayode's transfer to English outfit Manchester City is done.

The 24-year-old striker scooped the Austrian Bundesliga Golden Boot accolade after netting 17 goals during the 2016/17 campaign.

"After very long and hard negotiations, we have now clarified all the details and are now finished with the final signatures and formalities, which means that the transfer has been finalized," Wien chief executive officer Markus Kraetschmer told the club's official website.

"This transfer is also a great signal for our club and the players that good performances and a positive development at the FK Austria Wien allow a transfer to such a renowned club like Manchester City."

City have already confirmed that Kayode has joined them on a five year deal. But the prolific marksman has been loaned out to Spanish club Girona FC.

Girona will be campaigning in the Spanish La Liga after securing promotion to the elite league. They finished second on the Segunda Division standings last season.

The talented frontman is a well-travelled player having played in Ghana, Ivory Coast, Switzerland, Israel as well as Austria.
