Villa eye Bridge swoop – Report

Villa tried to sign Bridge during the January transfer window, but
lost out to West Ham for the former Southampton and Chelsea man.
Bridge will return to City at the end of the season following West
Ham’s relegation, but City will move to offload the former England
international this summer. The 30-year-old is entering the final
year of his contract at City and Bridge does not figure in the
plans of Roberto Mancini as he looks to trim his squad. Villa are
in the market for a new left-back with Stephen Warnock frozen out
of things at Villa Park and Bridge could be the answer to their
problems.
