Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson admits Andreas Isaksson could leave in January after he declared Joe Hart as his No1.

"I have spoken to Andreas and obviously, he is not very happy," said Eriksson. "I have told him it is up to him whether he leaves or stays and fights for his place.

"It was important for everybody that I came up with this decision before the transfer window opens in January.

"I don't know what Andreas will do but if he comes back and tells me he wants to go, I will not be surprised and I will understand."
