James McPake has countered Coventry City manager Andy Thorn's claim that he has handed in a transfer request at the Ricoh Arena.
Thorn had revealed that McPake had informed him that he was keen to return to Scotland, having spent three years with Coventry following his arrival from Livingston.
"James came to see me and said he wants to go back to Scotland which I am a little bit disappointed with," Thorn had told the Coventry Evening Telegraph.
"If people don't want to stick around for the fight and don't want to play here that's fine, they can move on because I need people who want to have a go for the club."
However, McPake is adamant that he remains committed to the Championship strugglers and has not asked for a transfer in January.
The 27-year-old commented: "Just to confirm, I haven't handed in a transfer request and I'm committed to CCFC like I have been since I came here.
"Like any player I want to be playing games. I still have the fight to get back into the team, and will continue to work hard to do this."
McPake began his career at Livingston but has only made 31 appearances for Coventry having suffered a back problem since joining.
