Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson admits Ousmane Dabo is likely to leave this month.

He told City's website: "One month ago I spoke to his agent and I wouldn't be surprised if he leaves.

"I suppose he is frustrated and he is a good football player and he hasn't played anything at all for us.

"But he is a very good professional, he's training very hard every day, and that's good."
