Andreas Isaksson joining Galatasaray...

Manchester City expect Andreas Isaksson to join Galatasaray before the close of the transfer window on Thursday night.

The Turkish giants have made a bid for the Sweden international who has been told he can leave Eastlands by manager Sven Goran Eriksson.

Joe Hart’s success in assuming the role of being City’s number one, despite his tender years, has left Isaksson with little choice but to seek alternative employment.

The 26-year-old revealed on Sunday he was keen to move to the Turkish Superlig and Eriksson’s long-standing right-hand man, Tord Grip, has confirmed the keeper will most likely have his wish granted.

“I don’t see any reason why the deal should not be completed this week,” Grip told Expressen.

Isaksson has made just 18 Premier League appearances in the 18 months he has spent at Eastlands as the start to his City career was severely hampered by a string of injuries that prevented him from making his debut until December 2006.
