Bridge: Heading to Upton Park
Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has confirmed Wayne Bridge is undergoing a medical at West Ham.
As revealed by Sky Sports News earlier on Tuesday West Ham are closing in on a loan move for Bridge.
Bridge is looking to leave City after dropping down the pecking order at Eastlands.
Aston Villa were hoping to sign the full-back, but it appears West Ham are set to win the race for the former Chelsea man with the left-back in London for a medical.
"Bridge, I think today, is in London for a medical," said Mancini.
Bridge has made a total of 57 appearances for the club since joining City in a £12million deal from Chelsea two years ago.
