Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle has admitted that he is trying his best to sign Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips this summer as the 29-year-old weighs up his options.

The Citizens are inundated with talent, and with 36 squad members at his disposal, Mancini will have to cut back considerably before announcing his 25 players for the Barclays Premier League season.

The 29-year-old made only seven league appearances for Manchester City last term, and is also attracting attention from top flight clubs including Stoke City.

Yet Coyle remains hopeful the Trotters can land their man, saying: "Shaun is a tremendous player. He is someone I would love to bring to the club. Whether it is possible, only time will tell.


"There are financial implications involved. Players at Manchester City are on contracts that are more than we could pay. There is a threshold we cannot go beyond.

"But there has been dialogue between our chairman and (Manchester City chief executive) Garry Cook. That is where we are at the moment. There is nothing concrete."
