Thailand international defender Suree Sukha is set to join Manchester City.

Suree was one of three Thai players invited for a two-week trial at City by new owner Thaksin Shinawatra last month.

Kiatprawut Saiwaeo and Teerasil Dangda also linked up with Sven Goran Eriksson's side.

Suree impressed the most out of the three players and was chosen to join City on a permanent deal.

"Suree will be the first Thai player to play in the Premier League," Shinawatra's lawyer, Noppadon Pattama, announced.

"His work permit is now being processed."
