Wright-Phillips happy and aiming to stay

December 6, 2006

Shaun Wright-Phillips insists he has no intention of quitting Chelsea despite transfer speculation involving West Ham and his former club Manchester City.

Substitute Wright-Phillips scored his first goal in Chelsea colours in the 2-0 win over Levski Sofia in the Champions League to help the Premiership champions finish top of Group A.

The 25-year-old England winger has been unable to hold down a regular place in Jose Mourinho's team since he moved to London in a £21million transfer from City in 2005.

West Ham are understood to have made enquiries about his availability while City boss Stuart Pearce would relish the chance to take Wright-Phillips back to Manchester.

Arsenal captain Thierry Henry also urged the Gunners to sign the winger but the player says he has no intention of leaving and believes Chelsea can go on to become kings of Europe this season.

Wright-Phillips said: 'I know I'm happy here, and everybody wants me here. What everybody talks about is their own problem, to be honest with you.

'Training with the lads here doesn't give you anything but confidence and all I have to do is take it on to a big stage like I did against Sofia.

'The players, my family and friends have always believed in me when times have been tough and that also goes for the supporters.

'They have always been right behind me and that's why I clapped them after I score to let them know it was for them.

'I don't see why we can't win the Champions League with the players we have and the way we've been playing, it is more than possible.'
