Wright-Phillips wants to stay at City

England international Shaun Wright-Phillips says he would love to see out the rest of his career at Manchester City. Wright-Phillips, 29, has been a City player ever since he arrived at Eastlands as a 16-year-old apart from three difficult seasons with Chelsea.

"It feels like I am part of the furniture here," the winger told www.mcfc.co.uk, the club's official website, today. "I would love to retire a City player and I have my fingers crossed it is something that can still happen.

"When I did leave in 2005, I broke down crying on the way to sign for Chelsea, but back then, we needed the money my sale brought in. The fans didn't even turn their back on me then. They always give me a brilliant reception and I can't explain how good that feels."
