Sky Sports sources understand that Queens Park Rangers are closing on the signing of Shaun Wright-Phillips.
A host of clubs have been looking at the England international, who is only on the fringes of the first-team squad at the Etihad Stadium.
Wright-Phillips had held talks with a number of clubs and Bolton had seemed favourites to land his signature.
But QPR have been looking to finalise a permanent deal for the 29-year-old and they appear to have won the race.
The MEN are also reporting this but in addition are suggesting that talks are also underway with a view to taking Craig Bellamy on loan for the season:
The Hoops have been busy in the market following Tony Fernandes' recent takeover and manager Neil Warnock has now turned his attention to bolstering his attacking options, targetting the out-of-favour City duo.
Bellamy was linked with a shock return to Liverpool last week, while Cardiff were also interested having taken the 32-year-old striker on loan last season, but the Wales international could now be set for a loan move to Loftus Road.
