Pen Pic

After being released by Nottingham Forest, Shaun Wright-Phillips was picked up by Manchester City and flourished in his early spell at Maine Road.

Under Kevin Keegan the lively winger proved himself to be a useful asset - masterminding the club's promotion to the top flight and gaining his first England cap.

He scored 26 goals for City in over 100 appearances before making a big money move to Chelsea - a fee believed to be in the region of 21m.

After an indifferent spell at Stamford Bridge, Wright-Phillips in 2008 re-joined Manchester City for around 8.5m - nine goals in 64 appearances for City wasn't enough for Roberto Mancini who let him sign for QPR in the summer of 2011.

SWP started off brightly but quickly became the player labelled with most shots to no goals ratio - a record that weighed him down and eventually out of the first team under Mark Hughes. He played a bit part role and filled in at the heart of midfield when required, but never really got going in 2012-13, where he and QPR suffered relegation.
