Rodwell's future at City has been the subject of constant speculation after failing to establish himself at the Etihad Stadium.

The 23-year-old has only started seven Premier League games for City since arriving from Everton in August 2012 and is thought to be keen on moving on this summer in a bid to get his career back on track.

Irvine knows Rodwell well having worked with the player during his time as assistant manager at Everton and he has described the midfielder as a "Rolls-Royce" of a player.

"I know Jack really well. He started training as a 16-year-old with the first team," Irvine told the Mirror.

"Jack is a very good player. He has had some injuries but he was a Rolls-Royce as a kid. Manchester City bought him for a huge amount of money so I can't imagine he is someone who will be available for a small fee."

The likes of Rodwell's former club Everton and Newcastle are also thought to be tracking the midfield dynamo this summer.

"Dynamo midfielder" ?? lol he was never that, remember he was always a defender and Moyes started playing him in mid to give him some spacial awareness. Don't want him back tbh

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
