Fulham Plan £4m Move for Man City Winger Shaun Wright-Phillips

Craven Cottage boss wants to reunite with his former Eastlands charge.

SHAUN WRIGHT-PHILLIPS faces a crunch summer decision as Fulham consider a fresh move for the winger.

He is three years into his second spell at Manchester City but has played only a bit-part this season as the club continued their multi-million pound spending spree in search of success.

Wright-Phillips, 29, is determined to prove he is good enough to be a first-team regular next term but may have to consider his options if City add even more ­attackers to the payroll in the close season.

Fulham boss Mark Hughes wanted him on loan in January and is weighing up a £4million bid when the transfer window reopens.

Given that Shaun Wright-Phillips first team chances at Man City get slimmer by the day it would make a great deal of sense for the former Chelsea winger to look for a summer exit. Roberto Mancini turned down a transfer request from the impish wide man in January which seems pretty strange given that the Eastlands boss hasn’t handed the 29 year old a Premier League start since September.

Clearly Fulham boss Mark Hughes knows Wright-Phillips well as he was the man who brought the player back to Man City when he was boss back in 2008. A move to the West London club could help revive a career that is danger of stagnating.
