Shaun Wright-Phillips says he's ready to fight for his place at Manchester City.

Roberto Mancini has preferred to use David Silva, James Milner and Adam Johnson in the wide attacking roles and Wright-Phillips has admitted that the Italian boss has given him no assurances about his future.

"No, he hasn't really," he told the Manchester Evening News. "But the important thing at the minute is to do as well as we can in the league.

"When they think the time is right, I'll look at it. I would like to stay for the long term.

"Obviously nothing's been sorted out yet but it hasn't stopped me from working hard and being happy.

"The main thing is I'm enjoying my time here and that's all I'm concentrating on."
