Shawn Wright Phillips has apparently turned down a new contract from Manchester City after claiming the offer, £60K per week, made him feel unappreciated.
Shawn Wright-Phillips – £60K/week offer makes him feel unappreciated
Well, with that statement, we suppose he’s not really suited to Newcastle in any case. And one reason is that Newcastle will no longer pay over the odds in wages and transfer fees on Tyneside, and at least we think it’s about time.
We’ve done far too much of that in the past with not much of a return.
Hughton told the Evening Chronicle today:
“As far as Shaun Wright-Phillips is concerned, he’s not one that will be coming here.”
“Shaun is in contract negotiations at the moment, and it is normal for him to be linked with other clubs.”
“It’s not something that bothers me because you can’t do anything about it.”
We don’t think Shawn was ever linked directly with Newcastle, other than the fact he’s a free agent this summer, and Newcastle will need to sign some free agents because transfer funds will be at a minimum.
But he’s not worth £60K/week.
