Saints snap up Man City youngster
Bradley Wright-Phillips
Wright-Phillips has joined Southampton for an undisclosed fee
Southampton have signed Bradley Wright-Phillips from Manchester City for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old striker struggled to get in the first team last season and the arrival of Paul Dickov from Blackburn has not helped his cause.

Wright-Phillips, who has signed a three-year deal, managed just two goals in 40 senior appearances for City, but scored 32 in 46 for the reserves.

Part of his fee was funded by 250,000 won by a fan in a Coca-Cola promotion.

City insisted on a 'substantial' sell-on clause as part of the deal, which sees Wright-Phillips leave the club a year after brother Shaun departed Eastlands for Chelsea.

Manchester City manager Stuart Pearce said: "Commercially, this is a good deal for the club but also for Bradley at this stage in his career.

"Like his brother, he was a popular member of the squad and an extremely likeable lad. As with Shaun, he will always be welcome back at this club."
