Moroccan World Cup star
Moustpha Hadji has killed off Arsenals hopes of signing him in the summer.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been tracking the Coventry City midfielder with a view
to a £5 million bid at the end of the season, but Hadji has pledged his future to the
Highfield Road club.
"I am very happy here and enjoying my time with the Sky Blues. I have three more
years on my contract and I dont want to move anywhere at the moment.
"It is flattering to know that other teams are interested but I have made lots of
new friends in Coventry so I have no reason to move."
Coventry have offered full back David Burrows a new two-year contract.
The 31-year-old former Liverpool and Everton player had looked set to leave the club
after five years but is now expected to sign the new deal.
"I have sat down with the manager and been offered a two year extension. I have to
go away and think about it now and make my decision in the summer but I am happy here and
would like to stay in the area."
Noel Whelan could still be out of the club before the transfer deadline tomorrow. Derby
County and Leicester City are still rumoured to be interested in signing the 25-year-old.
Meanwhile the Sky Blues take on Nottingham Forest in the FA Premier Reserve League
tonight. Ysrael Zuniga is expected to play while Marcus Hall could make a return to the
action after three months out of action with a knee injury.
