Jack Rodwell says that he was 'surprised' to hear of Manchester City's interest when he was at Everton last summer.

Manchester City midfielder Jack Rodwell has admitted that he was 'surprised' when the club made a move for him last summer.

The 21-year-old, who moved to the Etihad Stadium from Everton for £12m, has struggled to break into the first team due to a host of injuries.

"I was a little bit [surprised], yes, because of the injuries," The Metro quotes Rodwell as saying. "It was a good surprise though. They came in and I was fit at the time."

The England international has made just three starts and 10 appearances for the Premier League champions.
