The Rumour

RICHARD DUNNE has accepted he has no future at Manchester City.

Mark Hughes is pursuing moves for Joleon Lescott and Kolo Toure and Sunderland are now close to agreeing a fee for City’s captain.

Spurs also hold an interest in the Irish stopper and Dunne, 29, is ready to leave Eastlands to secure regular football next season.

The Analysis

There were always going to be some players at Man City who would suffer as a result of the big spending plans the club and Captain Richard Dunne appears to have accepted his fate in this regard. The Irishman wears his heart on his sleeve and gets stuck in and does all the dirty jobs expected of a defender without the grace and composure you would associate with a modern day Premier League centre back.

Harry Redknapp is known to be a fan and will look to get back up for the likes of Jonathan Woodgate and Ledley King, the fact that Dunne can also play at right back could work well for him but Man City are said to be looking for around £7m for the former Everton man and that price tag could scare off some potential suitors.

The Likelihood

Dunne to Spurs: As Redknapp looks to chop and change things he may well consider a decent bid for the 29 year old Dublin born warhorse.
