Manchester City goalkeeper Andreas Isaksson has explained why he rejected a move to Galatasaray.

"I want to be bought by a club if I am to move," Isaksson told TV4. "I have considered a loan, but I don't want that.

"It collapsed between the clubs and there is not much I can do about that.

"It's been a tough time and therefore it feels good to have made a decision. I will do my best, train and play for the reserves."
