The Swede has been waiting for Thaksin Shinawatra's takeover of the club to go through before being formally announced as Stuart Pearce's replacement at Eastlands on a three-year contract. That development looked even more likely when Eriksson touched down at Manchester Airport on Tuesday evening and admitted he hoped there would be further developments imminently. He said: "We will see tomorrow. I would prefer to speak tomorrow." Asked if he will be meeting representatives from City, Eriksson added: "I think so. If you wait until tomorrow you will know everything." With pre-season training starting on Wednesday, Eriksson is expected to meet the players before being formally unveiled as the club's new manager this week. It appears City can finally contemplate looking forward to next season after a summer of uncertainty, which has seen key players Joey Barton and Sylvain Distin leave the club. Former Thai prime minister Thaksin will take control of the club when his share-holding reaches 75% but the process has been slow. He has steadily moved towards the required figure, with only minor shareholders still to sell. However it is clear that, with the new Premier League campaign just weeks away, the club are desperate to have their new manager on board to get on with the business of building a squad. With Eriksson poised to take charge, City have already been linked with a string of players and, with a significant transfer budget available, he will be hoping to act quickly to bring much-needed quality to the club. The Swede has been out of work since leaving the England job following last summer's World Cup in Germany.
