Manchester City defender Micah Richards is seeking a loan move away. The Sunday Mirror says Liverpool, Tottenham and Newcastle have all failed to follow up their interest in the former England defender, being put off by champions City's £7million asking price.

With Bacary Sagna brought in from Arsenal to compete with Pablo Zabaleta at right-back, Richards, 26, knows his chances of breaking into the team will be limited.
