Sylvain Distin says he could be tempted to extend his current deal with Manchester City.

The Frenchman's contract at Eastlands expires in the summer and reports last week suggested he was ready to the leave the club for free at the end of the season.

City manager Stuart Pearce moved to play down suggestions that the defender was set to leave and he will be boosted by the stopper's most recent comments.

Distin is rumoured to be a target for a number of Premiership clubs, but the 29-year-old insists he could yet stay at City.

"Several clubs are asking for me," Distin told L'Equipe. "It is very nice, but I won't rule out staying at City."

Middlesbrough, Portsmouth and Newcastle have all previously been linked with a bid for Distin.
