Manchester City midfielder Jack Rodwell feels like a new signing.

Rodwell was outstanding on Sunday in victory over Chelsea.

"I've not been available for maybe 20 games in mid-season so yeah, I feel like a new signing coming into the team," Rodwell told City's website.

"As the manager brought me off against Chelsea, he said I'd done well. I'm just pleased to be back on the pitch and injury free to be honest."
