Rodwell insists he's not wasting career at Man City

Jack Rodwell insists he's not wasting his career at Manchester City.

Sunderland winger Adam Johnson claimed they would not play regularly but Under-21 hero Rodwell says the club is perfect for him.

Rodwell, who this summer went to City from Everton for £15m, said: "I'm young and English. I've not got a bad word to say about City. If they want you and sign you, then they have got intent for you.

"I was not guaranteed a starting place at Everton. I had a lot of injuries, Darron Gibson and Marouane Fellaini were in form, so it was a push for me to get in that side.

"But when the champions come knocking, it's hard to refuse."
