Bolton Wanderers’ Zat Knight is hoping to see his friend and Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips make the move to the Reebok stadium, as the Lancashire club chase the 29-year-old’s signature.

Despite the Blues beating Bolton last weekend, Knight feels that the Trotters’ performance might spur him to finally make the move.

Bolton are favourites to land the England international and, according to Sky Sports, have agreed a £2.5 million fee with Manchester City.

The Bolton central defender said: "I wish he was signing for Bolton tomorrow, obviously, but at the moment he's a Manchester City player."

"He's the sort of player we'd love to have here. It's out of my hands but if it was in my hands he'd be playing for us next week.


"Shaun's a good friend of mine and I really hope he chooses Bolton.

"With the type of football we try to play at Bolton, we would love him here. We try and go down the wings and get the ball out there. That's what he can do.

"I hope the way we played against City will encourage him to come here. Because we're good friends, he's been to quite a few games.

"He's watched us on Sunday and, speaking to him after the game, it seems he was quite impressed. So, hopefully, we've turned his head a little bit."
