Wright-Phillips move to QPR confirmed

Per Sky Sports:

Shaun Wright-Phillips has completed a move to Queens Park Rangers from Manchester City and admits he cannot wait to get started.

The winger was locked in talks with the Loftus Road outfit on deadline day, while also trying to negotiate his exit from Eastlands.

All parties have now reached an agreement and Wright-Phillips will continue his career in the capital.

Wright-Philips also tweeted confirmation of the move:


In many ways Roberto Mancini would have been happy to keep Wright-Phillips around, something he stated in interviews during pre-season when Wright-Phillips was arguably the pick of the tour to the USA, but with the season underway - and with the recent addition of Samir Nasri - faint hopes that Wright-Phillips had of forcing his way back into the side were dashed when he failed to even make the bench for the opening three games.

QPR should be a good move for Wright-Phillips, being a side where he will be a real focal point of their attack: a situation where he has generally thrived in the past and shown some of his best form.
