Fulham are chasing Manchester City outcast Shaun Wright-Phillips in a deal mooted to be worth £4million.
According to The Sun, Fulham tactician Mark Hughes is keen to be reunited with the England international once again having initially signed the winger from Chelsea in 2008 when Hughes was in charge at City.
While the London outfit are prepared to shell out a small fee for Wright-Phillips, the player would have to accept reduced wages as Fulham will not be able to afford his current £60,000-a-week wages.
However, Wright-Phillips himself is keen to depart from Eastlands in a bid for more regular first-team football.
City boss Roberto Mancini is ready cull some of the deadwood from his bloated squad and Wright-Phillips, 29, is one of those set to be shown the door.
