Beasley Given Five Games to Secure Man City Future

Manchester City's on-loan American midfielder, DaMarcus Beasley, must prove he's worth keeping during the final five games of the season in order to secure a long-term contract with the Manchester club, coach Stuart Pearce told reporters on Tuesday. "I will probably decide on DaMarcus in the last week of the season," he said. "If he features in every game we play, and if he starts every game, he will have done extremely well."

At the start of the season, Beasley was loaned to Man City from PSV Eindhoven, where he was out of favor. Pearce likens the 24-year-old American to former winger Shaun Wright-Phillips, whose slight frame never seemed to hinder his performances with City before moving Chelsea,. That said, Beasley's season has been curtailed by a series of injuries, limiting him to just 18 appearances this season.

Less than a month ago, the midfielder's chances a permanent move seemed nonexistent, until fantastic two performances against Fulham and Liverpool earned him a place in the first team. "Six weeks ago, we were being touted as relegation fodder," said Pearce, whose team is now unbeaten in its last five Premiership matches. On Tuesday, City faces Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium; Beasley was expected to start on the left.
