Hadji Not For Sale

Gordon Strachan has denied that Moustapha Hadji could be joining French club Marseille, who are keen to sign him before the end of the transfer window in their season.

The club were interested in the Moroccan when City clinched his signature in the summer.


"I have spoken to Mous. He is happy here – he loves the club, he loves the country and he loves the way we play out football. He is not going anywhere.

"Marseille have expressed an interest in him before but he chose us over them on that occasion."

The player City signed for £4 million from Deportivo de la Coruña in the summer has taken longer to settle into the English game than his compatriot Youssef Chippo, but is now beginning to show glimpses of his ability.

His 20-yard curling shot past David Seaman in the Sky Blues 3-2 Boxing Day victory over Arsenal was his fourth goal in the last six matches at Highfield Road.

Hadji is yet to play in his preferred role for Coventry, which is operating as a free man behind the front two, a position he is expected to slot into when the club reduce their huge injury list.
