McClaren wants Man City defender Richards at Newcastle

Off contract Manchester City defender Micah Richards is set to become Steve McClaren's first Newcastle United signing.

McClaren is expected to be named new Toon manager on Wednesday.

The Daily Star Sunday says McClaren has always been an admirer of Richards, 26, who is out of contract at Manchester City this summer.

McClaren made Richards a regular member of his squad when he was in charge of the Three Lions and the defender is quitting City.

He spent the season just ended on loan in Italy at Fiorentina.
