Manchester City have announced a partnership with baseball giants the New York Yankees to form a new Major League Soccer franchise.

New York City Football Club will enter the MLS in 2015 after a deal thought to be worth $100m (?66m) was struck.

The new club will play in a temporary home until a new stadium is built.

"We are thrilled to contribute to the energy and growth of New York City soccer," said Manchester City chief executive Ferran Soriano.
