Zaki will not leave Wigan

Zaki is currenly on-loan at Wigan from El Zamalek and has been linked with a move to Chelsea in the press.

But Wigan boss Steve Bruce has rubbished reports that Zaki could leave the club in January.

He slammed: “It does become a bit repetitive and boring. It is Chelsea this week, Real Madrid last week, Liverpool the week before, Manchester City before that.

“I think the whole thing needs to be addressed really. He is ours for the rest of the season.”

He added: “We are building the nucleus of a very good team — the last thing I want to do is dismantle it.

“The big clubs are circling around us but I want to keep my best players.”
