Transfer Target Opts Out Of Move
City boss Phil Brown could make his second signing of the January transfer window after returning from the Dubai training trip today. Sunderland defender Stephen Wright is expected to join on loan with a view to a permanent deal.
Michael Bridges returns to the club after a loan spell with Sydney. However, the ex-Leeds striker - unfavoured by Phil Brown - could be set to return to Australia. Due to the A League's salary restrictions, he's more likely to join another club currently without a 'marquee' player allowed by the league to earn above the salary cap. Sydney already have Juninho on big wages.
Henrik Pedersen is also due to return to Hull. He's been training with Silkeborg in Denmark rather than with his teammates in Dubai due to "personal reasons", but should be available for City's game against Coventry on Tuesday.
