Dabo quits Lazio to join Man City
Ousmane Dabo in action for Lazio
Dabo had other offers but accepted City's
Manchester City have completed the signing of Ousmane Dabo from Lazio on a three-year contract.

The former French international, 29, was a free agent after turning down an offer to stay with the Serie A club.

City boss Stuart Pearce told his club's official website: "I feel he will be a major asset to the squad.

"Ousmane is a vastly experienced holding midfield player, and gives us more options. I am delighted he is joining us."

Dabo, who made 28 starts for Lazio last season, passed a medical at City's training ground on Tuesday.

He joins fellow new recruits Joe Hart and Paul Dickov in the City squad, with Pearce still hopeful of attracting ex-Manchester United midfielder Quinton Fortune to Eastlands.
