Zola rules out player exodus

24 Dec 2008 - 08:56:34

West Ham United manager Gianfranco Zola is adamant that his star players will not be sold in the January transfer window.

The Hammers' financial problems are acute and rumours suggest players like Craig Bellamy, Matthew Upson, Valon Behrami, Robert Green, Dean Ashton and Scott Parker could be heading out of Upton Park next month.

However, Zola said: "They are very good players and I'm not surprised that big teams want them.

"But as far as I am concerned they are not for sale and I don't want to sell my best players.

"I want to try to improve the team if I can and that's the target for the January transfer window.

"As far as I'm concerned no, they won't be going. The club have told me I won't be selling those players.

"I would be very annoyed if we did. They have to give me a very good reason if they do that.

"The club have been very good to me and I don't think they want to make this team weaker."
