Sven-Goran Eriksson denies Steve Howard exit talk

Howard scored five goals for the Foxes this season

Leicester City manager Sven-Goran Eriksson says he has no plans to sell striker Steve Howard.

"He's our player and has a contract for one more year," Eriksson told BBC Radio Leicester when asked if rumours linking him with Sheffield Wednesday were true.

Howard, 35, signed a new contract in October which ties him to the Walkers Stadium club until June 2012.

He figured in 35 games last season but competition up front was fierce and 19 of those games came as a substitute.
