Gunnarsson keen to stay

Coventry City's player of the season Aron Gunnarsson has pledged his future to the club despite reported interest from Premier League sides. The 20-year-old Icelandic midfielder has been linked with summer moves to Bolton Wanderers and Fulham, while Celtic are also reported to be potential suitors. However, Gunnarsson claims he is happy to stay at the Ricoh Arena and in the Championship. "It's always nice to see that other clubs are interested in you because then you know you're doing something good," he told the Coventry Evening Telegraph. "I feel I've developed from game to game, week to week, after coming here from Holland with no-one knowing who I was. But I've only just turned 20 and I need to learn things. "Even though I've won the player of the season, that doesn't make me the perfect player, so I need to learn stuff and I feel I can do that here with Chris Coleman. "I've so many things to learn and hopefully I'll sit down with the chairman and the gaffer and talk about my new contract."
