Darius Vassell insists he wants to stay at Manchester City.

City rejected a bid from Turkish club Besiktas for Vassell's services in the summer, and he told the club's website: "I always knew how long I had left on the contract, and I knew that any decision was always going to be in my hands. I love it here, I want to do well here and that was always at the front of my mind. Getting back into the team was just the start of it."
