Rodwell, twice capped by England, has played most of his football in midfield but believes his future could lie in central defence and has his eye on a similar career progression to City captain Vincent Kompany.
"Any player at City is prepared to play anywhere, and I'm no different," said Rodwell. "Midfield, defence, I have even played out wide for Everton, so I will do a job anywhere and give 100 percent.
"Vinny is a good player, and I look up to him, watch his game and would definitely take the same path as him. He started out in midfield and is now one of the best centre-halves in the world."
