Blackburn keen to keep hold of Man City youngster D'Margio Wright-Phillips

Blackburn Rovers are keen to keep hold of Manchester City youngster D'Margio Wright-Phillips.

The Lancashire Telegraph says D'Margio, son of Shaun, has impressed at Blackburn, including a man-of-the-match performance against Arsenal in the FA Youth Cup quarter finals to set up a semi-final with City.

The striker has been on-loan with Rovers this season.

Blackburn academy manager and former City striker Mike Sheron said: “I'm not sure what the future plans are, but he's given himself a good chance here."
