Mpenza leaving Man City

Emile Mpenza is to leave Manchester City but the striker has no intention of leaving England, with the player's agent revealing that Bolton could extend the Belgian's stay in The Premier League.

The 29-year-old joined City in February 2007 and has enjoyed mixed fortunes, although the consensus is that his time is up at The City of Manchester Stadium.

With Mpenza keen to move on, his agent, Rachid Tajmout, revealed talks with four different clubs in three different divisions.

Tajmout said: "Because Emile wants to stay in England, I am negotiating with Bolton in the Premier League, two clubs in the Championship, Reading and Ipswich, as well as Leicester who have been relegated.

"Trabzonspor, who almost signed Mpenza before, are still in the running."
