Hadji Staying Put

Moroccan World Cup star Moustpha Hadji has killed off Arsenal’s 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.

He said:

"I am very happy here and enjoying my time with the Sky Blues. I have three more years on my contract and I don’t 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."

David Burrows, Coventry City FCMeanwhile 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.

He said:

"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.
