Wright-Phillips targeted by Bolton

Shaun Wright-Phillips is a shock target for Bolton. The Man City winger is out of favour at the City of Manchester Stadium, and is pining for a move elsewhere.

Zat Knight, the Bolton defender, has also pushed for a move to the Reebok Stadium: "I always talk to Shaun and he's a very good friend of mine. And speaking to him, he'd love to come to Bolton. He's at that age now where he needs to be playing first-team football week in, week out. I think he hasn't played regularly for the last two seasons. It's about playing football and then the rest will come.

"If he had to take a pay cut then I think he would do, because he could progress at Wanderers and then something else could happen. But he's a fantastic player and if people like that want to play here, then it shows how far the club has come."
