Pires dismisses Blues reports

17 Jun 2010 - 13:08:37

Former Arsenal star Robert Pires has dismissed reports that he was set to return to the Premier League with Birmingham City.

The Blues were linked with a move for the 36-year-old former France winger, who is available on a free transfer after leaving Spanish club Villarreal at the end of last season.

However, Pires claims that quotes attributed to him in which he discussed his desire to return to England four years after leaving the Gunners are not true.

"I saw the statements attributed to me and saying I was in contact with several English clubs. I didn't make those statements," he said.

"I would be attracted by a comeback to England, but no-one has contacted me or my agent so far."
