Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says new signing John Stones is ready to make his debut for the club.
The Englishman signed from Everton for £47.5m to become the world's second most expensive defender.
He became the Spaniard's eight summer incoming transfer after signing a five-year contract with the club.
"Finally we could pick John Stones up and it's important for us to have a young, English player with a huge talent," Guardiola told reporters.
"Not just to defend but for the build-up, his intelligence and the ability to play through the lines. He's a good, good player.
"He's fit – he played four, five, six friendly games with Ronald Koeman at Everton. Sane didn't train with us, he's out – in the next week I think he'll start to train.
"Stones has had a lack of time with his teammates but he reads the game so there are people who are intelligent. He reads what's going on and what he needs to do – I think he's ready.
"Nicolas is much, much better – he had a problem with his tendon. He will be fit but we have a little, little eye on the game in Romania so we'll see tomorrow whether he'll play against Sunderland.
"I know 80/90% who's going to play tomorrow but I'll sleep on it. It's almost done – not quite 100%, I need my dreams to make the right decision."
