Man City boss dismisses Galatasaray link for Isaksson

Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson has dismissed interest from Galatasaray in goalkeeper Andreas Isaksson.

Reports in the Turkish media have emerged claiming Isaksson, who has struggled to overcome a succession of injuries since his arrival from Rennes for £2million 15 months ago, will leave Eastlands for £1.3million when the transfer window opens in January.

"The sales usually start after Christmas, not before," Eriksson said.

"Andreas is worth much more than £1.3million. I understand Andreas wants first-team football. He is looking at Euro 2008 next summer and of course, he is afraid to miss it.

"He has been a regular for Sweden for years now and has done very well.

"My problem is that I have three very good goalkeepers, who all want to play, although I can say that at 3pm tomorrow, Andreas will be very happy."
