City to offload Ex-England defender

Published Add your comment

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has confirmed that full-back Wayne Bridge will be allowed to move on loan to a Championship club in the emergency loan window.

The 31-year-old spent last season on loan at West ham United, however after the former England defender failed to secure a move away in the transfer window, City will look to offload the player in the loan window.

And City boss Mancini says they will look to the Championships to find a club for Bridge.

"I think that it is better for him if we can find a good solution in the Championship," Mancini said.

 

While City were able to sell Shay Given and Shaun Wright-Phillips, a host of ex-first-team players including Emmanuel Adebayor and Roque Santa Cruz were unable to leave the club permanently, having instead to settle for loan moves.

Another City player potentially looking for a move away is Nedum Onuoha, whose move to Bolton Wanderers fell through, after Tottenham Hotspur failed to agree terms of the purchase of Gary Cahill.

However Mancini said: "Onouha will stay with us because he is homegrown but he knows it is difficult for him to play often.

"We may find a good solution for him in the next two or three months, or in January maybe."
