Espanyol defender Victor Ruiz has cooled talk of a move to Manchester City.

Ruiz is aware of City's interest ahead of the January market.

But he told Com Radio: "I want to stay at Espanyol - thanks to this club I can earn my living doing what I love, which is football.

"I feel very comfortable here at my city, with my family and my friends. I just think about what surrounds Espanyol, which is fantastic."
