'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Video: QPR Sign Sweep On Three Year Deal

Manchester City fans will always have fond memories of Shaun Wright-Phillips but it was the right time for the 29-year-old winger to find pastures new and pastures new he has found with Premier League new boys, Queens Park Rangers.

On transfer deadline day Sweep signed a three-year-deal with the Loftus Road club and by all accounts he can't wait to get his stalled career underway again.

'I'm delighted - I can't wait to kick-start my QPR career,' said SWP.

'Once I spoke to the Manager and saw the direction that the Club was going in, I wanted to be a part of that.'

'I'm here now. Get behind me as best as you can, just like the City fans did, and I'll give you a hundred and ten per-cent every time I go on to the pitch.'

'It's exciting times for QPR. With the new signings and the squad that we've got, the Club is heading in the right direction.'

So long Shaun and thanks for the memories. You'll always be held in tthe highest regard by myself and other City supporters. Good luck at QPR, just remember to pick up a minor knock the night before we play you!

He looks about as "delighted" as someone who has just been told their house has been burned to the ground. You can tell not only by his demeanor there but also by his comments on Twitter that he is absolutely gutted to be leaving but at the same time he still loves the club and probably understands why this transfer had to happen. I believe he will be back at the club in some role after he retires... I'd like to think so anyway. Good luck Shauny.
