Manchester City defender Micah Richards has denied he wants a move to Arsenal.

He told City's website: "It's ridiculous. This was in a magazine I spoke to once, a long time ago, it's very old stuff.

"That came from a silly question like; 'I've heard you're an Arsenal fan, would you like to play for them?'

"I've said when I was younger that I'd like to play for Arsenal - one day - and that was it. Now they're making a big thing about it.

"I'm just about to sign a new Manchester City contract and last week I said hopefully I'll be captain one day."
