Christian Ziege has quashed rumours suggesting that he is about to leave the Riverside by stating that he "perfectly happy with Middlesbrough" and he does not wish to leave the North East.

Liverpool have reportedly been tracking Ziege for sometime and the London based media claimed that Chelsea were about to make a bid for him, but these reports have been strenuously denied by both Boro manager Bryan Robson and chairman Steve Gibson.

"I have not spoken to anyone regarding a move away from Middlesbrough, and nor do I want to," stressed Ziege. "I am perfectly happy with Middlesbrough Football Club, I am not interested in moving anywhere."

It had been suggested that Ziege had a clause in his contract that would allow him to talk to any club that made a bid of £5 million, but Robson has denied this saying: "There is no get-out clause in his contract."

Ziege was a massive success on Teesside in his first season since arriving from AC Milan for £4 million last summer, and was acknowledged as one of the best foreign players in the Premiership.

maybe he's just saying this so as not to increase robson's wrath ..or something like that...

anyway i still hope we might get someone of his quality !;)

I wouldn't be so sure about Ziege not signing for us.

Lizerazu still hasn't signed anything yet though that I'm aware of - can anyone clear that one up?

Liverpool are still keen to prise Ziege away from Middlesbrough in spite of Robson's declaration that he is going nowhere. But Liverpool are aware of a clause in the player's contract which makes him vulnerable to any club who offers £5m and want him to join international team-mates Didi Hamann and Markus Babbel at Anfield. :confused:

as u should all know by now..GH always keeps his real targets in secret until the very last moment...

who would have thought we're going to try to get barmby!??
i'm very surprised Gh wants him ...although he's a nice player..


ziege has that clause in his contract..and whether robson wants it or not..he CANNOT do anything about it!

so it's all up to whether GH really wants him..and if ziege really wanna come..(the contrary of which would surprise me)
