Chelsea Winger Will Snub Aston Villa

Chelsea Winger Will Snub Aston Villa

Shaun Wright-Phillips will not move in the summer and will turn down any offers from Aston Villa according to the Chelsea winger.

Martin O’Neill tried to sign him during January either permanently or on loan but the England international wanted to stay and fight for his place (and pick up massive wages?!!?) at Chelski.

Wright-Phillips said: 'I've settled in. I didn't think it would have taken me this long, but it has. Like I said, I've kept my head down and got on with it. I set myself high targets from the start. I've never had to adjust them and won't stop until I get there. I believe now the things I used to do are coming more naturally, the way they used to do. I'm learning how to make an impact, make a chance in the time you're given.'

'I am settled in the south completely and I see myself living here for the rest of my life. I've been working hard all year. I've been keeping my head down and finding my feet the longer I've been here.'

Ho hum, we can do better!!! Lets face it, Wilf had him in his pocket all match this season!

Sounds like he's gearing himself up for a move like all the other players who say they will never leave the club their at!

Oh well, he isn't exactly hitting top form at Chelsea and is struggling to get in the side. He has one good game against Norwich and he's now committed to Chelsea for life. hmmmmm!!! Daniel Alves I believe would be an excellent choice!

Considering how close his feet are to his head I'm surprised its taken him this long to find them!

I cant see what all the fuss is about Wright-Phillips. Good player on his day maybe, but those 'days' are all too infrequent in my opinion. Do we need him? I cant see as we do.
