Despite our interest and Dan Ashworth’s hard work over the summer, Owen Hargreaves has decided to warm the bench at Manchester City.

The player has signed a one year deal with the rivals of his former club.

Speaking exclusively to the Daily Mail last week, Hargreaves said.

‘I’m going to blow people away, I’m coming back believing I can return to the level I was at before. My body feels great and my knees are perfect. I’ve just got this huge chip on my shoulder because I’ve been out for three years and people think I’m dead and buried. I’d like to think I can play 40 games this season.’

It’s now expected that Hargreaves will take over where Patrick Vieira left off with a bit part midfield role.
