QPR winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has opened the door to a potential shift to Major League Soccer before he retires.

The 32-year old former England international has revealed his desire to play in the USA alongside brother Bradley before his playing days are up, suggesting a possible move to New York Red Bulls could be on the cards.

“I’d definitely love to go to the MLS at some point, and it’d be great to play alongside my brother again before I hang up my boots,” the former Manchester City and Chelsea man said.

“Bradley’s doing really well and he has just returned for New York for preseason training.

“Since he’s joined Red Bulls, that’s another team I have to follow closely and keep in close contact with. Brad’s not had the rub of the green with his career, so I’m happy to see things working out for him in the States.”

Since arriving at Red Bull Arena, former Charlton Athletic striker Bradley Wright-Phillips has scored two goals in nine MLS outings for the 2013 MLS Supporters’ Shield winners.
