Kieran Richardson says he wants to secure a new deal at Manchester United.Kieran Richardson is ready to dash West Brom's hopes of bringing him back to The Hawthorns by insisting he wants to win trophies with Manchester United.
Richardson proved his ability to perform on the Premiership stage when starring in West Brom's successful battle against relegation at the end of last season.
Baggies chief Bryan Robson is a huge admirer of the gifted midfielder and has made it one of his summer priorities to bring him back to the Black Country either on loan or in a permanent deal.
Richardson's efforts for West Brom earned him a call-up to the England squad and he marked his debut with both goals in the win over United States at the weekend.
The midfielder is hopeful his efforts for The Three Lions caught the eye of Red Devils chief Sir Alex Ferguson as he intends to return to Old Trafford for pre-season and force his way into the Scot's plans.
"Hopefully I can go back to Manchester United and win The Premiership next season," said Richardson. "I want to sign a new contract and Sir Alex is chatting to my dad at the moment.
"But the main thing for me is to play football."
