Whelan Happy To Stay At Coventry

Noel Whelan, Coventry City FCCoventry City striker Noel Whelan has quashed stories linking him with a move to Aston Villa.

The 24-year-old has been linked with a 7 million transfer to John Gregory’s side - but today said he was happy to see out his contract at Highfield Road.

The link is bound to cause more bad blood between the clubs – Coventry last week reported Villa for an alleged illegal approach for Dutch midfielder George Boateng.

Whelan is very close to Coventry boss Gordon Strachan who has helped him through a series of off-field problems, and that looks set to keep him at the struggling club.

Whelan said:

"The club and my agent have not heard anything. I heard about the stories on Saturday and told the manager before our game with Blackburn. I have 18 months left on my contract and I am a Coventry City player for that time unless the club decide otherwise.

"I am playing the best football of my career at the moment and I am perfectly happy.

"Villa are a local derby team and there is no love lost between us and this will not help after last week."
