Ex-Charlton Athletic forward Bradley Wright-Phillips aiming for MLS move as he goes on trial with New York Red Bulls.
Former Manchester City and Southampton striker Bradley Wright Phillips has gone on trial at MLS side New York Red Bulls as he looks to get his career back on track.
The 28-year-old, son of Arsenal legend Ian Wright, is currently a free agent after being released from League One outfit Charlton Athletic at the end of the season.
During a loan spell at Brentford during the second half of the season, Wright-Phillips told Sky Sports in April that he wasn’t sure where he’d be playing his football next season.
The Red Bulls, who have all-time Arsenal top scorer Thierry Henry, ex-Brazil international Juninho and former Everton midfielder Tim Cahill in their squad, finished third in the MLS Eastern Conference last season.
The trial could see Wright-Phillips team up with former Charlton Athletic teammate Lloyd Sam, who made the switch to the big Apple last summer.
Meanwhile, Bradley expects his older half-brother Shaun Wright-Phillips to remain at QPR next season, despite their relegation to the Championship.
He told the Fulham Chronicle: “When I spoke to him he said he loves it at QPR. He’s got loads of friends there and still has two years left on his contract. He’s happy there.”
