Distin : 'I want to stay'

In comments made to French TV station TPS, Sylvain Distin stated his desire to stay at City this season, ruling out a transfer to Middlesbrough - or even a late move by Portmsouth.

Distin is quoted as saying:

"As I have the opportunity to talk about it, I will tell you the truth, I'm a professional, I am 100 percent (Manchester) City, and don't want to leave my club."

This backs up what Stuart Pearce has been saying in that he has a 'gut feeling' that Distin will stay - but as yet there is no word on whether he will extend his contract beyond next summer.
