Suree formerly played for Manchester City F.C. following a two-week trial with fellow Thai internationals Kiatprawut Saiwaeo and Teerasil Dangda,. Sukha's contract was set to be signed by the English club, but his work permit application was denied by the British Home Office as players originating from countries outside of the FIFA-ranked top 70 do not qualify according to Home Office guidelines. He also failed to pass on a clause requiring players to have participated in 75% of their country's internationals in the two years previous to the submission of the permit application. Following an appeal by Manchester City, a hearing was scheduled for mid-October. Suree was released by his former club, Chonburi F.C., in order to allow Manchester City to sign him as a free agent outside of the transfer window.
After a long wait, Sukha finally signed for Manchester City along with fellow Thai internationals and City trialists Kiatprawut Saiwaeo and Teerasil Dangda on 16 November 2007, on the same day that his former club, Chonburi, announced a partnership agreement with his new club.
On 9 May 2008, Sukha was quoted in the Bangkok Post, as stating his future would lie in either China or Australia after his loan spell at Grasshoppers Zurich. On 16 October 2008, Sukha was released from Manchester City.
