Sturridge offered new deal?

Today's News of the World reports that City have offered Danny Sturridge £1.2million/year on a new deal.

This is an increase from £8,000 to £25,000 per week, and fends of interest from Chelsea.

In a sense this is good news: Sturridge is a great prospect who we need to keep at the club. On the other hand, this news comes two weeks after learning that Johnson was just about to sign a five year deal, and months after hearing from Hughes that a deal for Hart was close.

The club have very pressing matters while the due diligence is ongoing. But once this is finished it would be a great relief to have Hart, Johnson and Sturridge finally tied down on long term deals.
