Samaras to stay in England

Georgios Samaras could leave Manchester City before the August 31 transfer deadline - but only for another Barclays Premier League club.

Former City boss Stuart Pearce spent £5million on the Greece international 18 months ago but Samaras has flattered to deceive during his time at Eastlands and appears to have no future under new manager Sven-Goran Eriksson.

Samaras has yet to make even a single appearance on the substitutes' bench this term and has fallen so far down the striking pecking order he is not even expected to figure in tonight's Carling Cup encounter with Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

It seems clear Samaras' future lies away from the club, and Middlesbrough are believed to be keen on signing the 22-year-old should the proposed £11million transfer of Yakubu to Everton finally get the green light.

However, while there are plenty of other potential suitors expressing an interest in Samaras, his advisor Paul Koutsoliakos has stressed the former Heerenveen frontman does not want to quit the Premier League.

'There are a lot of clubs from all over Europe keen on Giorgios, but he wants to stay in England,' said Koutsoliakos.

'He feels as though he has more to show the people over there and also to himself. He strongly believes he is good enough to compete in England, which is why he is not interested in leaving.

'Hopefully, something will happen but if not he has a contract with City until 2010, so he will stay where he is.'

Samaras is among a host of players deemed surplus to requirements by Eriksson.

Fellow strikers Bernardo Corradi and Paul Dickov would be allowed to leave, while former England international Darius Vassell has already turned down moves to Besiktas and Derby this summer.

With almost 30 senior players at his disposal, Eriksson knows he must offload some before he can add to the eight new faces he is responsible for.

Inter Milan's Adriano is among a host of star names still being linked with the upwardly mobile Eastlands club, who currently lie an impressive second in the Premier League table.

Danish midfielder Thomas Gravesen is also attracting interest, while a late move for Parma's Mark Bresciano cannot entirely be discounted.
