Jack Rodwell: Future set to be decided

City are yet to officially open talks with any interested parties, but a host of teams are jostling to land the England international, either on loan or on a permanent basis.

The 23-year-old joined City in 2012 when they paid Everton more than £12million for his signature, but lack of first team opportunities have hampered his progress and he has played just 26 times to date.

But Rodwell, who can play in midfield or defence, is still considered to be one of the finest young talents in English football.

Sky Sports can reveal that Newcastle, Sunderland, Stoke, Hull, Southampton, West Ham, Tottenham, Swansea, West Brom and former club Everton, as well as teams in Spain and Italy, all have an interest in landing him.

City sources have confirmed to Sky Sports that no discussions have taken place about Rodwell and he is set to link up with Manuel Pellegrini's squad for pre-season, although bids are expected in the next week.

It wasn't that he's been a failure at City. When he's played, for the most part he has put in impressive performances. If he could have stayed fit for long enough, I'm pretty sure he'd have cemented his place in the side.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
