With City having to fend off interest from Chelsea 12 months ago, some fear Premier League relegation may see Ruddyâs exit before the end of the transfer window.
âI was disappointed to miss out on the World Cup but Iâm more determined than ever now to make sure I prove to people why I feel I should have gone, and hopefully we can do that by getting promoted,â Ruddy told the Pink 'Un.
âWe know how tough itâs going to be. Weâve been in there before and itâs a tremendously tough league to get out of. But we are going to give it our all and like I said, as long as we can keep developing as a squad and as a club, we should be fine.â
