Aston Villa and Newcastle Chase Wayne Bridge

Aston Villa and Newcastle United are interested in former England international Wayne Bridge, according to the Express.England international Bridge has more than 30 caps, Bridge made his Three Lions debut in February 2002 against Holland and he has one international goal to his name, ironically coming at the City of Manchester Stadium during the 6-1 thrashing of Iceland in 2004.Bridge is currently contracted to Manchester City following a loan spell to West Ham United in the 2010/11 campaign.Bridge made eighteen appearances in all competitions for West Ham before his loan ended. The player isn’t a part of Manchester City’s long-term plans and Roberto Mancini is keen to trim his squad.However, City’s asking price of £5m and Bridge’s £90,000 a week wages are thought to be a stumbling block for both Aston Villa and Newcastle who aren’t prepared the respective fees.

Newcastle are likely to be in the market for a left-back this summer with the expected exit of Jose Enrique.
