Premier League clubs fighting for Man City’s Rodwell
Jack Rodwell will have the choice of half the Premier League if he is this summer allowed to leave Manchester City, Sky Sports has reported.
Rodwell, who moved to City from Everton in the summer of 2012 in a £12m deal, has struggled to make an impact with the champions, injuries limiting his availability to only 26 appearances. Everton are one of a number of teams said to be monitoring the situation.
The Toffees will be rivalled by Newcastle United, Sunderland, Stoke City, Hull City, Southampton, West Ham, Tottenham Hotspur, Swansea City and West Bromwich Albion should Rodwell’s time at City come to an end, with a loan deal said to be a possibility. Teams in Italy and Spain are also said to be interested.
Rodwell began his career at Goodison Park as a centre-back before moving into midfield. His debut came in the 2007-08 season and he went on to play more than 100 times for Everton, scoring eight goals. The 23-year-old also has three England caps to his name, the last of which came in 2013.
