Home / Soccer Fans / Manchester City Outcast to be Loaned to Fulham?


The list of unhappy Manchester City players linked out of Eastlands is growing by the day and it wouldn’t be January without another player linked out of a Manchester City jersey and into another soccer jersey. Forgotten winger Shuan Wright-Phillips is looking to get out of his nightmare and into a Fulham jersey, rumor has it, on a 6 month loan deal. City are apparently not interested in loaning out the speedy wide player; rather they are interested in selling the player for around a £4 million fee. Here’s what  a source from Goal.com UK had to say about the ordeal:

“The two clubs are in talks at the moment and are close to agreeing a deal,” a source told Goal.com UK. “City would prefer a permanent deal but it is also important to them that they do not sell to a major rival.

“Wright-Phillips is keen to make the move and return to London. He wants to play regularly again and he knows that if he does well, Fulham want to buy him in the summer. It is just a question of sorting out the financial arrangements. City might have to subsidise a portion of his wages.”

This would be the third time Mark Hughes would sign the England international if the deal goes through. The player’s wage demands, however, are a huge impediment in the deal going through. City would once again have lost value on a player they signed for £8.5million if the £4 million fee is true. City are potentially looking to offload a bevy of players as their squad is one of the deepest and largest in all of Europe. Roque Santa Cruz, Emmanuel Adebayor, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Wayne Bridge, and Shay Given have been constantly linked out of the club while rumors also put Micah Richards, Jo, and Joleon Lescott out of Eastlands. The number of unhappy players at the Manchester based club is piling up, despite the wage packets offered to the players for riding the bench game in and game out. Many clubs would be wise to take a chance on these unhappy Citizens, as they will be motivated to prove they can still cut in the English Premier League or in a top-tier league in general. The club has had absolutely no cohesion over the past 3 campaigns than arguably any other top-flight club in England thanks to a few truckloads of cash being spent on top-tier talent. Wright-Phillips is just another City player looking to get playing time anywhere and prove his worth.
