Man City’s Micah Richards 2/1 to follow Jack Rodwell to Sunderland this summer
Competition: Premier League
Market: Micah Richards to join Sunderland
Odds: 2/1 @ Betfair
Manchester City defender Micah Richards looks set to be on his way out after the side signed Arsenal’s Bacary Sagna this summer, and Sunderland could well be the destination for him. The out-of-favour defender only has 12 months to go on his deal too.
Former City midfielder Jack Rodwell recently made the switch to the North-East, and Richards could well follow him through the door too. While the Black Cats do have Billy Jones and Santiago Vergini as options at right-back, Richards is highly-rated by Poyet and would be the first-choice if he did join.
His England prospects have disappeared due to the lack of action at Man City, with Richards making just two Premier League appearances for the Citizens last season, and seven in 2012/13. As a result, Betfair are giving odds of 2/1 for the 26-year-old to join Sunderland this summer, but the likes of Everton and Liverpool are still said to be in the running, according to the bookmakers.
