Taiwo: Happy at Marseille
Marseille defender Taye Taiwo has insisted he will not be leaving the club during the transfer window.
Manchester City have been credited with an interest in Taiwo, although the full-back stated last week that he was unaware of any firm bids.
The Nigerian has now moved to put an end to the speculation by telling potential suitors that he does not want to move.
Taiwo admits he will reassess his situation at the end of the season but for now he is staying focused on Marseille's Ligue 1 fight.
He told skysports.com: "I am staying in Marseille. I don't want to move to the Premier League at the moment.
"I heard a lot of clubs are after me in England, Manchester City and others, but I am fine at the moment in Marseille.
"The supporters love me here, they are always there for me. I will listen to offers in June, not at the moment, and we will see in the summer if I have to move."
