He needs to leave to get his career back on track
The England international struggled to win a place since Jose Mourinho signed him from Manchester City for 21m pounds in 2005 but had been gaining playing time until Avram Grant took over. He doesn’t look to feature in the new manager’s plans and should end the frustration and go somewhere where he will play. He wasn't even on the subs bench last night.
He has only made 29 Premier League starts in just over two seasons.
Sven has come out and said that they need to sign 2 more top players in January, well here is one of them.
