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.

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.
