Aidy Boothroyd has put an end to speculation linking him with a move for Kelvin Etuhu.
The Coventry City manager was rumoured as an admirer of the Manchester City winger, who has not been included in their 25-man squad for the rest of the season.
But Bothroyd has confirmed he will not make a move for the 22-year-old Nigerian.
"We looked at him and there was an opportunity to do something with him in the summer," the Sky Blues boss told the Coventry Telegraph.
"He has got a terrific record but we have got players who are in the groove here and just getting it."
Etuhu has made just 15 first-team appearances at the City of Manchester Stadium and is now way down Roberto Mancini's pecking order.
