Man City have been linked to Fulham’s Steed Malbranque but Chris Coleman has said the player is not for sale.

He told the official site:

‘He’s been playing well consistently for us, as have all the guys this season. I thought Steed was excellent. His all-round play was very, very good. Steed is technically fantastic, we know that. It’s the other side of the game, his hard work and understanding that has improved.’

Adding:

‘It’s the best he’s been playing for us since he’s been at the club. We’ve got him this year and next and we want to extend his contract. We showed with Luis Boa Morte that we’re capable of doing that. We’re trying to build a team and not lose any of our best players.’

The last club to be continually linked to Malbranque was Aston Villa. No bid transpired.
