FULHAM want to sign Manchester City star Shaun Wright-Phillips in a £4million deal.
Craven Cottage boss Mark Hughes signed the England man from Chelsea when he was Eastlands boss in 2008 and is keen to work with the winger again.
Fulham can afford the small transfer fee but SWP would need to take a drop in wages as the Londoners would not be able to offer anywhere near his current £60,000-a-week wages.
Yet the player is keen to end his second spell at the City and is desperate for more first-team football.
City are looking to offload some of their fringe players during this month’s transfer window and Wright-Phillips, 29, is one of them. (The Sun)
Shaun Wright-Phillips has not had much of a chance to prove himself this season, the 29 year old winger making two Premier League starts this term, but the England international is apparently still keen to look for first team football and not rest on his laurels and collect his big wage packet and that is laudable and Mark Hughes clearly knows the speed merchant well so this may well be a deal that suits all parties.
Roberto Mancini has been told to cut costs and his large squad could do with some culling and the former Chelsea man would appear to be very much surplus to requirements.
