Tottenham are interested in offering James Milner a way out of Manchester City this summer, according to several reports.

Milner has fallen down the pecking order at the Etihad and has not started a game since their FA Cup victory over Chelsea on February 15.

Manuel Pellegrini has used Milner sparingly of late; the midfielder was also an unused substitute in City's last Premier League game against Stoke and the League Cup final with Sunderland.

Milner, who can play both centrally and out wide, has one year remaining on his City contract but both the Mail on Sunday and the Sun report the 28-year-old is considering his options in his search for regular first-team football.

City have yet to start discussions with Milner over a new deal.
