Man City announce departure of Nasri

Manchester City has agreed to sell French attacker Samir Nasri to Turkish outfit Antalyaspor.

However, with interest in Nasri having dwindled to the point where the 30-year-old was in danger of spending a year in the stands in Manchester, Guardiola and co. have seemingly dropped their demands.

Gibson was part of the Boro team that was relegated from the Premier League last season, and it's understood the player's uncle, club chairman Steve Gibson, wants to see his nephew remain on Teesside for now.
