Manchester City return ruled out for Wright-Phillips
Wednesday 27 August 2008
Shaun Wright Phillips' agent has ruled out the possibility of the Chelsea winger joining Manchester City despite speculation which has linked him with a return to the club.
The 26-year-old was linked with a £9m return to Eastlands after reports suggested that he would barely figure in Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari's plans this season.
Wright-Phillips is also believed to interest Everton boss David Moyes who has had a quiet time in the transfer market this summer and is desperate to add to his squad with transfer deadline imminent.
Manchester City boss Mark Hughes admitted he would also like to bring new players in and said today that he was in discussions with several clubs about potential new signings.
But Wright Phillips has no desire to join either Barclays Premier League club, according to his agent Wayne Lindsay.
"He (Wright Phillips) doesn't want to join either of them and we are now discussing the next move to see what we do," Lindsay told Sky Sports.
"Because of all the problems there (City) and the uncertainty surrounding the place he is unsure.
"He is speaking with the manager (Scolari) at the moment but he is settled in London. He would like to stay and that's the bottom line but it is up to the manager.
"We are looking at all the options really at this moment in time so I can't really say much more."
